Addressing the Talent issue: The French 'Passeport Talent'
Attracting talent is becoming one of the most pressing issues in any start-up and by extension, at any national policy aimed at fostering the Tech environment. The French Govt' is seriously tackling the issue by developing their 'Passeport talent- Entreprise innovante' scheme, aimed at attracting non-national talent.

the procedure is fast and free,
it lasts for 4 years that can be renewed further
