Call for Applications: French-American Digital Lab Paris Edition
Co-produced by the French Embassy and Business France, the Parisian edition of the French-American Digital Lab is a 6-day exchange program of workshops, conferences, and networking events with leading tech and cultural companies for budding international culture-focused start-ups. A program of French Tech New York and part of Paris - New York Tandem 2016, the Digital Lab aims to lead the digital transformation of cultural industries by supporting and lending resources to young creative leaders—the undeniable drivers of global competitiveness—who are transforming the way we engage with culture. By bringing established business leaders, incubators and institutions together with pioneering entrepreneurs from both countries, the Digital Lab will illuminate how technological advances are shaping and reimagining our society.
For its first Parisian edition, the Digital Lab seeks to nurture innovative, US-based creative minds that place culture at the heart of their work. Products or services may be in the domain of museums and cultural sites, visual arts, performing arts, audiovisual and cinema, music, fashion and design, video games, or publishing, among many other areas.
Major French incubators such as Paris&Co, 104factory, CENTQUATRE-PARIS incubator, Créatis, l’Institut Français de la Mode and Look Forward; world-class cultural institutions; and leading French companies including Havas, Orange, Vivendi, and France Télévision, will bring local expertise to this vast network and help tailor the program to each participant’s needs and to support and empower the selected startups of the 2016 edition.
The French-American Digital Lab is supported by the City of Paris, the Institut français, FACE Foundation, Flipboard and Vivendi.
