About the Startup Tour 

For this second edition, FrenchFounders is expanding its ambitions transatlantically, not only by opening its doors to French startups wanting to develop in North America but equally to Americans wishing to develop in France. 

The Startup Tour runs from June through September 2018, and includes 6 local competitions (New York, San Francisco, Miami, Montreal, Los Angeles and Paris). The final competition is in September in New York attended by a jury of economic, business and industrial experts.

The jury for the local competitions will be composed of investors, top-executives and entrepreneurs.  The finalist of each local competition will be qualified for the finals in New York in September and will have the privilege to be guided by a mentor during the last preparation period.

For the final competition, four prizes will be rewarded to the most promising startups: the People’s Choice Prize, the AAGEF Prize (French Grandes Ecoles Alumni Association), the American Prize and the First Prize.
