Entrepreneurship plays an increasingly important role in the French economy. According to a study conducted by INSEE, 2019 was another record year for business creation, with a 17.9% increase over the previous year. No fewer than 815,257 companies were created (compared to 691,283 in 2018).

These new companies operate in various business sectors, namely:

  • Household services (+ 28.4%);
  • Real estate (+ 20.8%), 
  • Information and communication (+18.7%);

To date, 28% of French people surveyed by OpinionWay say they want to start or take over a company. A number of measures have been put in place to make the entrepreneurial process easier, such as the auto-entrepreneur status and the student-entrepreneur status.

In addition, France enjoys an international reputation thanks to its unique know-how, the famous “Made in France”, or French Tech. This label brings together French start-ups, with the aim of “making France one of the most attractive countries in the world for startups that are willing to take off, conquer international markets and build a meaningful future”.
