KEDGE Alumni takes stock of the past year!
France Digitale is the leading organisation for start-ups in Europe. Created in 2012 in the aftermath of The Pigeon Movement, the association represents more than 1,800 French digital entrepreneurs and investors. Its mission is to facilitate the emergence of future European digital champions.
After an election by its 1,800 members, France Digitale renewed a portion of its Board on Monday, 14 June. The role of these new faces of French tech and innovation will mainly be carried out in a strategic, political, and economic context.
The France Digitale Board is made up of an equal number of entrepreneurs and investors. Among them are two KEDGE graduates:
- Benjamin Bitton (Class of 2005), Partner, 2C Finance
- Benjamin Gaignault (Class of 2011), CEO, Ornikar.
The new Board will be primarily responsible for representing and defending the interests of entrepreneurs during the Presidential debates. Innovation, entrepreneurship, employment, and autonomy are major issues for the future of the country. As such, France Digitale will advocate for the French tech industry to the candidates.
