Good news in terms of international collaboration for the entrepreneurial community in Atlanta. The city has been named the seventh and newest host city for a French government-backed accelerator program that sends start-ups to the U.S. to develop and deepen high-tech partnerships.

Known as the the “Deeptech North America – NETVA (New Technology Venture Accelerator) Program,” it is operated by the French Embassy’s Office for Science and Technology, based in Boston, and offers personalized support for French innovators looking into the U.S. market. More than 130 companies have participated, and winners have raised 250 million euros in private funding since the program started in 2010.
