Many countries have begun setting up funds for startups, mostly tech related. With the numerous successes of tech startups across the globe, it’s a pity for any countries which don’t take an initiative to support the local tech, and sometimes international tech startups.
Some of the successful initiatives have been the Startup Chile program, which has so far hosted some Ghanaian startups. India also recently launched a $1.5 billion fund for startups, which is a reasonable amount considering the country’s population and how it has been touted as having some great tech talent. The French Tech Ticket is one of such initiatives.
The French Tech Ticket is a program designed for entrepreneurs from all over the world who want to create their startups in France. The program, in this upcoming and 2nd edition, will admit 70 international startups which will be assigned to some 41 incubators to build and grow their products over a 12-month period.
