The VivaTech show, the global meetup of startups and leaders to celebrate innovation, which is taking place in Paris, is also the chance to present new additions to the Tech Book of international rankings.

The Tech Book details France’s position in international tech standings and presents a review summary of the French entrepreneurial ecosystem. The document also seeks to look at the methodologies used and explains the rankings given out to France. The different standings, very rich in information, are to be taken with some precaution, as the choice of indicators and sources has an important impact on the results.

The aim is not only to record all the key strengths of startups in the French economy, but also to identify the levers that France can pull to become a leader in Industry 4.0. The Tech Book can be seen as a valuable tool for distinguishing between perception and economic reality.
