La French Tech as a movement is powered both by the government (a.k.a. the French Tech Mission) and almost more than 100 official French Tech Communities all over the world. This pool of funding is designed to help the latter bring our strategy to life, each in their own local communities, by co-funding projects carried out within one year.

We encourage applications for a wide range of projects, including but not limited to events, the production of high value-added publications, activities in connection with major conferences, distribution partnerships, learning opportunities and more.

Below are the two categories of French Tech Community funding available:


Millennium Falcon 


€75,000 to €100,000

The jury reviews all the high impact initiatives on the ecosystem that emphasize the French Tech national strategy.

This year 2020, unprecedented with the Covid-19 pandemic, redefines the priorities of French Tech around three areas:

  • “Talents and Inclusion” in order to strengthen and diversify the pool of entrepreneurs and talents in France;
  • “Responsibility and Impact” in order to make start-ups a vector of positive change for the economy, society and the environment;
  • “Attractiveness and Expansion” in order to encourage the best talents, foreign investors and founders to choose the French Tech ecosystem.
