Bpifrance rallied to promote the French industry of the future in Japan

The French industry, which has been growing strongly in recent years, has risen internationally, and gives hope to these French entrepreneurs with international projects.


Ten innovative companies chosen by Bpifrance in partnership with Business France have been privileged to discover the business opportunities on the Japanese market during the mission industry 4.0 from 1st to 6th December 2019.

SMEs and French ETI were invited to 6 days of discovery giving them the chance to meet major players in the Japanese industrial ecosystem.In addition, this allowed them to familiarize themselves with Japanese culture, new processes and new organizations while expanding their business network through networking that has fostered new business contacts.

Finally, accompanied by the 2 sponsors of the mission, Erwan Coatanéa and Damien Marc, also FrenchFab Ambassadors, the ETI and SMEs concerned were able to exchange and benefit from the feedback of their peers who have already crossed this internationalization stage.

For the achieving of this seminar, Bpifrance selected companies among its customers.

Based on the Bpifrance Accelerators model, this mission made it possible to create a link between Japanese and French manufacturers, going through many B2B meetings, or visiting prestigious factories such as Toyota, Fujitsu, Dassault, Fanuc...

On the other hand, this expedition correlated with a total immersion in Japanese culture thanks to the participation of these entrepreneurs.

3 Excellence events were organized : a sumo training, the visit of TeamLab Bordeless and a Grande Emulsion dinner with optimal links with the French ecosystem in Japan and a complete immersive experience.

Bpifrance offers full support to streamline and accelerate the development of these companies, and thus consolidate their success in a demanding and favorable Japanese market.
