  Through its award-winning incubation program, Grenoble Ecole de Management will join hands with Expando to increase its international exposure. The triple-accredited university regularly ranks among the World's Top 50 universities for its Masters in business and the Top 5 in France.    

An award-winning incubation program

  Located in Paris and Grenoble at the heart of the Alps, Grenoble EM was founded in one of the world's most innovative cities in electronics and nano-electronics. The incubator of Grenoble Ecole de Management has brought to life some shining startups.   Find out more about the incubation program.


What's in it for Expando users?

  Earlier this year, alumnus & Sleek Founder Adrien Barthel announced a Series-B round to simplify company incorporation in more countries.   We are partnering with his startup to offer Expando users a fast and seamless remote expansion.   Find exclusive perks just for you.    

La French Tech ecosystem

  Since its launch in 2013, the French Tech ecosystem has seen relentless growth. Earlier this January 2022, "La French Tech" celebrated its 25th unicorn, 3 years ahead of the initial plan set by the Ministry for Economic Affairs.   According to EY's annual report, the ecosystem's total fundraising amount reached €11.6 billion doubling the past year's figures.

  While the ecosystem has still not got to list a startup in France's stock exchange CAC40, startups will have to continue their fast growth and ultimately demonstrate their ability to be profitable. The next goal will be to reach 20 decacorns (valuation beyond US$ 10bn) by 2030.    

Expando at the starting point of startups' international journeys

  As part of this 6-month program, the Expando core team will benefit from mentoring, workshops, and fast-tracked access to the French Tech ecosystem. As we aim to make the world remotely accessible to all startups, we believe it's vital to have a firm foot in Europe's fastest-growing tech ecosystem.
