The city of Paris houses about 50% of the tech ecosystem in France, earning it the title of the cradle of French tech.
Launched in June 2017, Station F is a startup campus dedicated to helping entrepreneurs bring their ambitious ideas to life.
Spanning 34,000 square meters, the campus hosts a startup zone with over 3,000 workstations, a market, 26 international support and acceleration programs, event spaces, and several dining areas.
The building houses meeting spaces, a restaurant, three bars, a 370-seat auditorium, and houses essential startup services such as investment funds, a fab lab, 3D printers, and public services.
The building is divided into three main areas: the Create zone for working, the Share zone for networking, and the Chill zone for relaxation and dining. The Chill zone, managed by the Big Mamma company, opened in May 2018 with a restaurant named La Felicità.
