France: a deep tech friendly country
An ambitious Deep Tech Plan is mobilising €2.5 billion over 5 years in France to back the shareholder equity of deep tech businesses. Thanks to substantial funding from the French government, Linksium strives to “derisk” the early stages of technological startups.
The strongest concentration of Deep Tech startups in France
- 7 out of 10 local startups stem from the city’s academic research laboratories namely Deep Tech startups (compared with 1 in 10 for the rest of France)
- The France’s densest scientific and technological cluster (Global Innovation Index 2020 - Switzerland)
High density of talented R&D workforce and abundance of public laboratories
Based on the conviction that added value can be generated by concentrating skills, the abundance of public laboratories and the research excellence of the Grenoble region in many fields of application is an exceptional opportunity for Linksium.
