Words from Maryvonne Hiance, CEO of France Biotech
- If you had to describe BigBooster in 3 words, which words would you pick?
« Innovative » « International » « Entrepreneurship »
- What are the strengths of French startups?
The quality of research and science represent two of the country’s key strengths. Since early 2016, France ranks 2nd in Europe in terms of funds raised (just behind London). This is due to a favourable environment — generous public seed funds, good support from local stakeholders « pôles de compétitivité » (competitiveness clusters) — encouraging start-ups through creation and development stages.
- BigBooster choses a down-to-earth approach. Why do you think it is useful for the startups?
This down-to-earth approach is very useful because start-ups need a pragmatic and step-by-step approach in order to develop and fulfill their long-term goals. BigBooster’s approach is very interesting and quite unique because it provides personalised support for companies with international ambitions.
