With your permission, we will also support you in a partnership with Dublin French Tech community and the France Ireland Chamber of Commerce. They may provide feedbacks on your project and some first contacts on your initiative.

One-time support for your first trip to France

We wish to support as a priority the startups aiming to set up partnership with public research, student centers for innovation, transfer and entrepreneurship and more generally incubators linked to public insitutions or local authorities.

Members of Dublin French Tech community will also be a priority. Yet, we will try to support all requests regarding the development of technology. In France, links with a competitiveness cluster or a French Tech metropolitan group will be a significant contribution. Lastly, special attention will be given to projects under the Make our planet great again initiative of the French government.

Financial support from the Embassy should be perceived as an incentive, in no case a full endorsement of costs. It will therefore be limited to € 500 on a flat-rate basis and one trip by startup.
