The biggest startup competition in France
Over the course of ten seasons since 2013, the “10,000 Startups to Change the World” competition has heard the pitch of nearly 2,000 nuggets and awarded more than 350 startups.

Our jury of experts and journalists conducted an innovation tour of France in 8 metropolises (Marseille, Lyon, Nantes, Paris, Strasbourg, Lille, Toulouse and Bordeaux) in January and February in search of world-changing entrepreneurs. They then made a special trip to Overseas, Reunion, the Caribbean zone (including Guadeloupe, Martinique and French Guiana) and the Polynesian zone (including Tahiti and New Caledonia).
At each stage of the French tour, six regional winners were awarded, one per. category or 48 in total. The categories embody the greatest challenges of the 21st century: the industry of the future; Environment & Energy; Health; Data & AI; Smart technology (use innovations); and a final category, Start, for budding projects in all areas. Abroad, La Tribune rewarded 3 startups, bringing the total of 2022 winners to 51.
