    Paris Edtech Days

  • Why Paris?

    Paris is the second fastest growing Edtech ecosystem in Europe (after London) and the eighth in the world according to a July 2018 report from Navitas Ventures. What makes our ecosystem grow is the combination of efforts from the public sector, the fact that it's very well connected and that (VC) investment is present.

    A strong will from the public sector

    Public stakeholders in France are proactively supporting and investing in Edtech. Public tenders have been launched to financially support NGOs, startups, and larger companies. You will meet the most active entities: Caisse des Dépôts (the biggest French public bank) and the French Ministry of Education.

    Investment in Edtech taking off

    Besides public tenders, two VC funds that invest only in European Edtech startups have chosen to be based in Paris. This is of great help to Edtech companies in France. They will tell you more about their investment thesis and portfolio companies.

    Startups on the rise

    We have more than 300 Edtech startups in France, a number that is rising faster every day. This is a sign that the market is opening up. Ecosystem initiatives like the Edtech Observatory and Edtech France make these startups visible. You'll meet some of the most promising K12, Higher Ed and Corporate Learning startups.
