The Partech Shaker was launched in 2014 by the international investment fund Partech Ventures in order to support the development of the French tech ecosystem. The Partech Shaker is both a workspace and a space for exchanges between professionals regarding digital transformation and growth through collaboration.
Located at 33 Rue du Mail in Paris, the campus hosts startups that have already passed the seed phase and are business-ready. It houses major American brands, like Dropbox and Pinterest that chose it as a base for developing their business in Europe, European startups like Influans, Kantox, Made.com and WINGiT, and representatives of established corporate partners such as BNP Paribas, Dentsu Aegis Network, Econocom and Haworth. Since 2016, its Europe Made Easy program has been supporting tech companies from around the world in their expansion into the French or European market from Paris.
In 2017, the Partech Shaker partnered with Techstars to develop the first Techstars program in France: Techstars Paris with Partech Shaker, which will welcome its first batch of startups in September 2017.
