No longer solely known as the city of romance, Paris is stepping up its game on the global entrepreneurial stage.

Paperback Vol.1 & 2 + Digital Vol.2


Digital Vol.2


Paris is known for its romance, beauty and history; the city attracts millions of tourists every year. But its booming startup scene shows that Paris has much more than just romance on offer. Home to an increasingly growing tech landscape and Station F – Europe’s largest tech incubator – Paris is set to become one of the main startup capitals in the continent, alongside London and Berlin.


Startup Guide Paris Vol. 2 is filled with city-focused tips, startups, coworking spaces, programs, schools and investors, as well as interviews with founders and experts on the local startup ecosystem. In short, it has everything you need to get started in the French capital.
