Next Partners

BpifranceLa French Touch 

Bpifrance, Bank of public investment, confidence partner of entrepreneurs, finances businesses from the seed phase to transfer to stock exchange listing, through loans, guarantees and equity.

Bpifrance accompanies firms in their innovation projects and international activities. Bpifrance also insures their export activity through a large range of products. But to be the bank of entrepreneurs means as well to offer a tangible support to accelerate their growth and enables them to build a 360°view for their firms. Thus, Bpifrance has developed a range of services: consulting missions, training days, networking and acceleration programs.

Among the many stakes at play in Bpifrance, the Cultural and Creative Industries sector holds a very special place. It’s a strategic priority for Bpifrance through the implementation of a dedicated plan, Plan Touch, which echoes La French Touch’s community of entrepreneurs. This community aims to bring together the creative talents from the Fashion, Video Games, Editing, Visual Arts and Lifestyle, Music and Performance, and of course, the Cinema and Audiovisual industry.
