The City of Paris and its partners regularly organise networking events or events geared towards promoting start-ups and other associated innovation players.

#My Start-up in Paris / Open Days

Every day, the 550 start-ups hosted in Parisian incubators invent our future. The City of Paris wanted to organise a free event open to the public to highlight this diversity and wealth of talents in all the Parisian neighbourhoods. Every year, in October, the Parisian start-ups invite the residents of the city to come visit, exchange, and learn about innovation.
These open days offer the chance to discover over thirty little-known and unusual innovation centres. The public is invited to choose between places dedicated to IT, design, video games, publishing, the environment or even about health. They can then choose between the circuits on offer: workshops, meet-ups, conferences, a multitude of different activities to feel, hear, touch and even taste innovation.

#La Bourse de l’Innovation (grants for Innovation)

Before the Innovation awards ceremony, a trading session of Parisian start-ups is organised in a context worthy of the Palais Brongniart’s heyday: you will give an oral presentation to the public in the great nave of the Palais Brongniart. The public will increase your rating which is displayed on the value table. The higher your rating, the more investors will be interested in your innovation. The last sessions will decide between the highest rated innovations. The 3 highest-rated innovations of the final session will receive the People’s Choice Award.

This event organised by Cap Digital offers a discovery of the sprawling and diverse landscape of new knowledge, creations and productions, but also the fertile nature of the network of communities, talents and know-how who are building the future today in the Ile de France region and in Paris
