Will Paris become the new startup hub in Europe?
A&S are now on the road to find out if culture really eats strategy for breakfast!
31 degrees, beer mugs clinking, a swarm of tourists permeating the streets, Despacito playing by the Seine, Macron making the planet great again, snazzy Station F thriving on the startup vibe, ‘SSUP has arrived in Paris!
With Brexit looming over Londres, opportunist Xavier Neil founded the world’s biggest startup campus, Station F, in arrondissement 13th, complete with giant neon coloured pillows and exposed pipes. Avidly supported by the French government’s French Tech Initiative, Paris is ready to kindle unicorns! With its evolving R&D capabilities boasting the launch of Facebook’s AI research center, germinating seed money and growth fund VC capital, its linguistic and economic ties with African markets – Paris is ready to be the new startup nation.
