French start-ups are rocking at IFA Berlin this year!
Iot is helping to digitalize every company and the market keeps growing with more than €1B of revenue generated in France in 2017. Smart Home, wearables and drones are the most important sectors represented in IoT, saving time, energy and costs to everyone.
The market is constantly changing with the development of Blockchain making it more autonomous and secure.
Can we say that Blockchain will save the world? Maybe, but for now, French start-ups will meet the German Tech to show us how they’re disrupting Blockchain!

La French Tech is the term used to describe the French startup community: entrepreneurs, investors, engineers, designers, incubators, public organizations, … committed to the growth of French startups and to their international prosperity.
This community includes champions such as BlaBlaCar, valued at 1.2 billion euros, and Sigfox and Devialet, which respectively raised 150 million euros and 100 million euros in 2016. The French Tech initiative is an innovative public policy created in 2013. It is not about the government imposing regulations and limits; it’s about the government supporting the startup ecosystem.
La French Tech is also about being open to the world and welcoming foreign talent, with its 22 French Tech hubs across the globe, the French Tech Ticket Program for international startups looking to set up in France, as well as the French Tech Visa, an accelerated procedure to obtain residence permits for startup founders, employees and investors.
