Tech4Race au Tremplin

Tech4Race integrates Le Tremplin, the French incubator dedicated to sports startups

Located on the ground floor of the Jean Bouin stadium in Paris, the Tremplin is the first incubator entirely dedicated to sports innovation. It is managed by Paris & Co, the economic development and innovation agency of Paris.

Tech4Race has been selected along with 24 other companies, among more than 100 applications. We will benefit from an adapted support to consolidate our business model and prepare our fundraising which is planned for the end of 2017.

Integrating Le Tremplin is a real opportunity for Tech4Race. We will be able to interact with other sports startups, institutional players as well as large companies in the sector. It is also the opportunity to gain visibility.
