The Paris region has Europe's highest concentration of Fortune 500 corporation headquarters. Centrally located in Europe, it is a multi-specialized region hosting leading companies from various industries, including ICT, automotive, aeronautics and space, finance, energy, life sciences, food industry, retail and luxury.

In addition, the region has attracted many of world's leading technology companies that have set up R&D activities here in recent years.

In 2018, the Paris region became Europe's number one investment destination for R&D. In 2019, the region welcomed a total of 415 foreign investment projects.

As large French corporates are constantly seeking new technologies, thematic match-making events are arranged in order to connect large corporates with foreign startups and scaleups that have developed innovative solutions.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the events will be online: one-to-one meetings between startups and high-level contacts in large French corporates will take place via video conference or phone.

Forthcoming match-making events for 2021 are:

  • Autonomous Things: May 27
  • The Future of Work: June 22
  • Digital Health: July 8
  • Circular Economy: Oct 12
  • Smart Energy: Nov 23
