Techfugees France, Paris 🇫🇷

The Techfugees’ chapter in France is made up of a group of active and engaged members from the French associative, tech and entrepreneurial communities all looking for solutions to improve the lives of refugees in Europe.

Its aim is to create a space where ideas can become reality. A forum where people put forward proposals on how to solve the challenges faced by refugees and where they help them to access tech talent, investment and advice in order to make these projects sustainable and purposeful.
