Who we are

Technology and startup community

La French Tech Australia is the story of hundreds of entrepreneurs who needed a community to support each other in Australia. It all started in France in 2014 where French Tech became an accreditation awarded to French cities recognized for their startup ecosystem.


Today La French Tech (or FT for close friends ūüėČ ) is an accreditation awarded to innovative French communities throughout the world. And we are about to be one of them! (We can‚Äôt wait!)¬†


Once awarded the official FT Label, all of us will be able to use this stamp of entrepreneurship excellence. We will be able to apply for funding to develop our community. We will get access to new opportunities to increase support and growth for our amazing and passionate ecosystem.
