FrenchTech Community

The digital economy, a lever for economic growth and jobs, is growing in Bourgogne-Franche-Comté: 14% growth in the number of employees in two years and the awarding in 2019 of a “FrenchTech Community” label rewarding the dynamism and quality of the regional ecosystem’s structure. In addition, Burgundy-Franche-Comté benefits from the presence of universities, schools, research laboratories and industries that make it an attractive and radiant digital territory. Quality infrastructures such as very high speed internet access, incubators and business centres, and data centres are present in the region and meet the requirements of digital companies.

Founded in 2013, the Nantes-based start-up is making its debut in the West. With double-digit growth, the start-up has decided to strengthen its presence throughout the country, from the East of France, to reach new customers. Alban STREBELLE, Digital Project Manager, worked alongside Dijon Métropole to help the company set up in Dijon by proposing premises that met its needs. A financial round table was also organised to accelerate the progress of the project. AER BFC and Dijon Métropole are closely monitoring the start-up to anticipate the specific needs of this fast-growing company.

The Webhelp Group is experiencing rapid international growth (55,000 employees in 36 countries) and is strengthening its position in France. In the region, the Montceau-les-Mines site having reached its maximum production capacity, Webhelp was looking for new premises. During a Customer Relations Club organised by Alban Strebelle, project manager for the sector, the Director of the Webhelp site in Montceau-les-Mines told the Agency about the development needs of her establishment. Based on the specifications communicated, the Agency located the areas of activity likely to host this project and the employment areas capable of meeting the labour needs. The AER BFC worked with the Grand Chalon and Pôle emploi to be able to accommodate the company and the planned jobs on a dedicated site.
