How can we introduce this new workspace dedicated to the advancement of startups and scale-ups without mentioning its important location?! A symbolic choice, the top of the Grande Arche de la Défense will now host a 2800m2 space dedicated to the best Fintech, Insurtech and Regtech companies.
Philippe Bourquin, Director of Hub Fintech Europe and Swave explains that “Paris&Co has taken this historic site, vacant since the inauguration of the G7 in 1989 by François Mitterrand, and turned it into a forward-thinking workspace.
From now on, budding Fintech, Insurtech and Regtech stars will have access to a highly-specialised network, as well as top-quality events on their favourite subjects: neo-finance, AI, blockchain, green finance etc. Our partners, consisting of institutions and already successful startups, will of course be present to offer our startups their wisdom and expertise during public or member-only private events.”
Key partners include the French government, the Île-de-France region, Société Générale, the City of Paris, the Greater Paris region, France Fintech, Paris La Défense, Europlace, and BPI, as well as a number of mature and inspiring scale-ups whose names will be announced in the coming weeks.
