If you know a little about the French start-up ecosystem, you couldn't miss Station F, a project created by Xavier Niel, who chose Roxanne Varza as the leader. The campus opened its doors in June 2017.
More than an incubator, Station F is a place to live that brings together many start-ups, investors and partners (in the French Tech Central area, you can meet Bpifrance and Business France, for instance.) Within the same space, there is a rich ecosystem!
3 programs have been designed by Station F teams to support entrepreneurs:
- The “Founders Program”, designed by entrepreneurs to help other entrepreneurs, this is the main program of the site. It includes full-time accommodation.
- The “Fighters Program”, for entrepreneurs "who had not the same chances in life.” This is a free access to the Founders Program.
- The “Fellowship”, for those who want to benefit from the ecosystem while being flexible. An office available 5 days a month, to have access to the largest community of entrepreneurs in the world.
In addition to these programs, there are those designed by the site's partners: the Garage Facebook, the vente-privee Impulse and the Numa Scale Hub, to name just three of the 20 existing ones.
In a few months, Station F has become a central place on the French entrepreneurial scene, whose reputation already extends beyond our borders.
