A 400M EUR match fund, allowing France to co-invest and encourage angel investing in hundreds of young deeptech startups
The French Tech Seed Fund aims to leverage private investment in technology startups in the post-maturation stage, in particular, deep tech startups that are less than three years old, with the goal of network co-funding. Drawn from the Investment in the Future Program, the fund is powered by diverse scouting partners who dialogues with founders on a regular basis and work in conjunction with private investors to find and support the French economy’s next stars.
