The Young Entrepreneurs Initiative (YEi) is a platform for mentoring and networking aimed at US-based entrepreneurs who understand the importance of internationalizing their vision and their activity, and who wish to set up a technology venture in France.
YEi specializes in putting entrepreneurs in touch with the key resources and partners they need at a very early stage from feasibility to starting up. We focus on key issues like patenting , teambuilding, identifying strategical partnerships, pre-seed and seed funding.
Our services are free of charge and we are a non profit network managed by the Office for Science and Technology of the French Embassy in the United States. We work with the top innovation and entrepreneurship networks in France, mentoring organizations and affiliated service providers. We also work with a large number of US partners who help us support transatlantic technology ventures.
