Sébastien Goldenberg
CEO & Co-Founder,
Surrounding yourself with experienced entrepreneurs is a key element when developing a new business and the Start-Up & SME Club is the ideal place to do this. As co-chair of this club I am proud of the network and connections that are made.


Jeanne Monchovet
Founder and Principal Consultant of Olystix
A number of successful startups have joined our Club to fast track their development. And the feedback we are receiving is excellent. What they value the most is that the French Chamber actively promotes the interaction among its members, allowing startups to connect with large corporations.
