La French Tech BFC, French Tech capital of the year 2024

The presence of the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté Region at the Viva Technology Show, the largest European digital trade show, is part of the Regional Strategy for Economic Development, Innovation and Internationalization (SRDEII). Its goal is to position the region in the global competition and to internationally promote its expertise, especially in foodtech, healthtech, new mobilities, energy, as well as robotics and artificial intelligence.

The Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region, recognized as a fertile ground for technological innovations, stands out for exemplary collaboration between public and private actors. Its tech ecosystem today includes more than 400 start-ups and 1,200 establishments for approximately 20,000 jobs; assets that have earned the French Tech Bourgogne-Franche-Comté the designation of French Tech Capital of the year 2024.
