How can we help you ?

Our primary objective is to assist companies in finding business partners in both continents. Relying on a network of 300+ business experts in France, we consistently monitor markets to find the most promising French companies and help them navigate their way to international development. In sub-Saharan Africa, our mission is to help local companies find the best French suppliers or technology partners for their development.

Showcasing French Expertise

Business France organizes, on an annual basis, 50+ events introducing the relevant French companies to potential African partners. We bring forward France’s entrepreneurial elite to various events, including trade shows, independently organized product showcases and tastings. We coach them to ensure their strategy is adapted and inclusive of local consumer customs and behaviors. Each event represents an opportunity for local businesses to identify future suppliers, clients, and partners.

Technological & Scientific Matchmaking

Ensuring R&D is at the forefront, we initiate meetings between major national and local players, smaller companies and startups, from France, having developed niche research and technology. By doing so, we enable them to determine possible synergies to further develop innovative products through scientific collaboration or funding.
