Welcome to the EIT Food Accelerator Network French Hub!

A culture deeply rooted in food, chefmanship & gastronomy coupled with a recent significant rise in startup investment has allowed France to become a fertile ground for food innovation. It was only time for EIT Food to open a French EIT FAN hub in the heart of Paris & more precisely at Station F - the biggest startup campus worldwide - with the support of the local reference in terms of Food and AgTech accelerator: ShakeUpFactory.

Come, join us & discover our solid local ecosystem and benefit from a wealth of facilities and experts from experienced academics to top food business leaders.
