“The French Tech San Francisco mission is to mobilize the local French Tech ecosystem to help French startups establish themselves and succeed in Silicon Valley.

It also promotes the France brand and the value of the French talents to Silicon Valley players and helps them understand the French ecosystem and find their partners there to approach the French and European market. The French Tech community gathers individuals and organizations under a unique banner. Many of the people involved in the project are already very active. Every day they stimulate our local ecosystem, develop it, and support French Tech goals. To know more about La French Tech movement, please visit https://lafrenchtech.com/en
