Business France and Bpifrance are once again joining forces to organize the 7th edition of the French Tech Tour China (FTT). This two-week immersion program in China's main innovation hubs will enable the 15 FTT laureates to discover the Chinese market and seize opportunities for technological and commercial collaboration from November 26 to December 7.


This year, the FTT teams wanted to focus on two major themes that are the digital (Internet, Fintech, Telecommunications, audiovisual, IoT-M2M, design and manufacture of electronic equipment, artificial intelligence and big data) and the Energy Transition (New mobility, renewable energy, storage, smart grids, energy efficiency ...) with the objective to enter the market by diving into the heart of 5 of the country's most innovative ecosystems: Shanghai, Shenzhen-Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Chengdu and Beijing.


With the aim of enabling theses innovative companies to gain a better understanding and to validate their strategy in this complex market, this program will bring participants to Hong Kong on Friday, November 30th for a pitch session, followed by a networking event in collaboration with Hong Kong Science & Technology Parks Corporation, as City Partner in Hong Kong.
