Announcing the 12 Startups of Startup Garage at Station F

Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s COO, announced the launch of Startup Garage in January.

We’re welcoming 12 local startups to join the first class of Facebook’s Startup Garage at Station F. Beginning in September, programming for the startups will include access to mentors, training workshops and a dedicated workspace within Station F, the world’s largest start-up campus.

Over a period of six months, we’re excited to contribute to the growth of the ecosystem of French startups, especially those involved in the data economy. Facebook itself emerged from a startup ecosystem, and with Startup Garage, our goal is to bring this knowledge and experience to the next generation of startups in France.

Each of the startups is innovating on data privacy to build value for people while putting trust and data control at the heart of their business. The 12 startups chosen to join Startup Garage from Facebook represent a wide range of sectors and technologies ranging from virtual assistant to recruitment and education. Their services help their users manage their personal information, make better decisions and use their data to simplify their daily lives.

Here’s a brief introductions to each of the startups; for their full profiles, visit our Facebook Page.
