Launch of the support offer for 20 young French companies

French Tech Green20 is a support offer for 20 young French Greentech companies selected each year. The product or service of these companies must be innovative;

Their head office must be in France; their turnover must be growing; their activity must respond to the challenges of ecological transition deemed a priority by the government, such as energy efficiency. The objective of the public authorities is to support these companies to help them accelerate their development in France and abroad.

Editor's note This programme could be considered anecdotal and promotional. It can be so if the accompanying measures are not provided or if there is an incompatibility of attitude between these winners and the Administration. On the other hand, the programme can be a stimulus by helping the winners to overcome difficulties, to combine skills, to give them recognition (or a label) that will serve them in other relationships. As this is the first attempt to stimulate young companies in the energy transition, we cannot prejudge what will happen. We can only hope that these twenty winners will at least receive a boost and above all that a favourable climate will be created around them.
