French Tech DeepNum20 unveils the 20 winners of its 1st edition

This Thursday, October 27, 2022, Jean-Noël Barrot, Minister Delegate in charge of Digital Transition and Telecommunications and Clara Chappaz, Director of the Mission French Tech announced the list of winning start-ups of the1st edition of the French Tech DeepNum20, among which 6 are addressing the field of AI, including Aleia.

As part of France 2030, the government has launched several strategies to support the development in France of digital technologies at the origin of deep tech start-ups, and thus contribute to the industrial and technological sovereignty of our country (AI strategy, Cybersecurity strategy, Cloud strategy …)

The French Tech Mission contributes to these actions of support of the State with several programs of accompaniment dedicated to the start-ups which propose innovations of rupture, within the framework of the strategy France 2030.

The French Tech DeepNum20 program is thethird of these programs, after the Green20 and Agri20 programs. It aims to strengthen the support of French start-ups operating in the priority digital sectors of the France2030 plan: AI, cloud, nanoelectronics, electronic chips, robotics, 5G, quantum technologies, space, digital greening and cybersecurity.


The selected start-ups will benefit from one year of personalized support from the relevant government departments, via the network of French Tech correspondents present in more than 60 administrations and public services, as well as integration into certain economic diplomacy actions and opportunities, particularly in terms of visibility, in France and internationally.
