International visit to Paris
Thirteen of London’s fastest-growing B2B tech companies are in Paris on the 23rd October in a drive to forge stronger trade links, win new business opportunities and show that London is open for business.
The businesses travelling to Paris represent some of the most innovative B2B tech companies in London, spanning data analytics, video creation, fashion and media. They include Baby2Body a go-to lifestyle platform for pregnant women, Smartzer, making existing video content interactive and shoppable, and Thrive, who provide on demand access to a coach online platform.
London and Paris are both leading centres for business built on strong foundations of innovation and entrepreneurship. Both cities have strong technology ecosystems, as showcased by the innovative B2B technology companies attending this mission.
London and Paris share strong trade links, with London receiving more inward investment from Paris than any other global city, attracting £2.4bn and 9,498 jobs over the last ten years. Paris, by comparison, is the largest European destination for foreign direct investment from London.
The one-day trade mission is being led by the Mayor’s International Business Programme in partnership with Paris&co, KPMG, wework, Business France and Department for International Trade.
