French Tech Acceleration
A 200 Million Euro endowment for boosting the accelerators that host and support France’s future tech champions.
The purpose of French Tech Acceleration is to fuel the growth of the best startup accelerators across the country. Funded from a €200-million endowment, French Tech Acceleration accepts candidates among private accelerators and qualified funds around France. The French Tech Acceleration Fund invests in two ways:
- Directly, in accelerators established as private companies
- Indirectly, through investment funds that integrate a significant “startup acceleration offer” into their strategy.
In any case, the French Tech Acceleration Fund acts as a well-informed minority investor, and does not invest directly in startups.
In order to foster the emergence of ambitious projects, the fund’s investments may exceed €10 million. Investments are made over time until the French Tech Acceleration Fund’s capacity is exhausted.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE
The fund is open to accelerators working with startups developing technological innovations as well as groundbreaking uses and services in the digital, medtech, cleantech and biotech industries.
