Upcoming Events

We Helped Them:

Christian R. Schubert

Global Sourcing Director, SERVIER

The Galien Medstartup was a well-organized event in an attractive global location. The event brought together illustrious stakeholders from many backgrounds in the US and France. We enjoyed great conversations, presentations, novel insights, and left with very interesting follow-ups. I would recommend attendance to anyone who would like get to know the French biotech ecosystem in a flash!

“From the assessment and planning through each subsequent phase, working with Business France AgriFood tech was exactly what my business needed. Their thoughtful and thorough direction on strategy, content and communication has helped us stay focused on track to success. We found their work to be exemplary. I would highly recommend that any firm looking to tackle the US market for the long haul engage Business France and try to join Agri NEST program.”
