Welcome to the EIT Food Accelerator Network French Hub!
A culture deeply rooted in food & gastronomy coupled with a significant rise in startup investment has allowed France to become a fertile ground for food innovation. The French EIT FAN hub is implemented by the local reference in terms of Food and Ag Tech innovation, ShakeUpFactory, and located in the heart of Paris at Station F - the biggest startup campus worldwide.
"Our company was definitely just at the right stage to take advantage of the program. If we applied previous year or next year it would not be as useful as it was now! The best parts include well structured and useful workshops, opportunities for networking, great lecturers/moderators, 1:1 with a great mentor and amazing introduction to the agri and food community."
Ema Matic - Clstrlobe, FAN '22
"The best part of the program is the network EIT has to offer and the enthusiasm of the Shakeup Factory team to make it a success."
Madeleine Gielens - MaGie Creations, FAN '22
