A programme supported by PULSE France

fonds parisien
pour l’innovation

The City of Paris and Bpifrance have signed an agreement to create the fonds parisien pour l’innovation (FPI) – Paris Innovation Fund. This initiative aims to support innovative projects with an impact, replacing the Paris Innovation Amorçage Fund (PIA). This initiative reflects the city’s desire to provide greater support for the social and ecological transition.

Le Fonds Parisien pour l’Innovation is a grant intended for economic players based in Paris or with a branch in Paris who are carrying out innovative projects with an impact.

This financial aid can amount to up to €30,000 and is reserved for structures incubated in a « Fonds parisien pour l’innovation » accredited incubator.

The FPI thus encourages highly innovative projects, whether technological or not, and contributes to the entrepreneurial dynamic in Paris by supporting local economic players.

Do you run a company or association with a strong innovative character and impact, and are you looking for funding and support?

PULSE France would be delighted to support you during the FPIxPULSE programme!
