Business France showcases 120 technology innovators at MWC 2015
For the ninth consecutive year, Business France, the national agency supporting the international development of French businesses, is organising the French Tech pavilion at Mobile World Congress (MWC), the trade show for the mobile-telecoms sector taking place in Barcelona (Spain) from 2 to 5 March 2015. There will be 120 SMEs and start-ups on the French Tech pavilion – the largest national pavilion at MWC 2015.
The French Tech pavilion will enable several partner regions, such as Brittany, Ile-de-France, Languedoc Roussillon, Midi-Pyrénées and Provence-Alpes-Côte-dAzur to be represented at the trade show. Additionally, high-technology clusters will have stands of their own on the French Tech pavilion, with Systematic Paris Region and Solutions Communicantes Sécurisées (Secure Communicating Solutions), the latter being based in Provence (south-eastern France). With a surface area of 560m², the French Tech pavilion will be the largest national pavilion at the trade show. It will comprise three booths in Hall 5 (5 B41, 5 B61 and 5 B71) and two booths in Hall 8.1 (8.1 D41 and 8.1 E49), known as the APP PLANET. The 120 companies hosted by the French Tech pavilion are specialists in a range of areas within the telecommunications industry, such as mobile apps, the telecoms infrastructure, mobile advertising, mobile marketing, telephone-based games, accessories, engineering services, and financial services.
The offices of Business France in Brazil, China, India, Israel, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, Spain and the UK have helped organise the French Tech pavilion by setting up B-to-B meetings between French exhibitor companies and representatives of leading international groups such as LG, Samsung, Huawei, Telefonica and Vodafone Spain.
Mrs Axelle Lemaire, France’s Minister of State for the Digital Industry, will visit Mobile World Congress 2015 in order to help promote French excellence in the field of technological innovation at MWC. Many innovations will be showcased during the trade fair: below is a snapshot, with four companies that will exhibit on the French Tech pavilion at the trade show.
The full list of exhibitors on the French Tech pavilion is available here: http://mwc.ubifrance-events.com/; further details can be sent on request.

Ms Sylvie Bermann, Ambassador of France to the United Kingdom, presented the prizes at the Grand Prix VIE UK 2014 awards ceremony, which took place on 4 November at her Residence in central London. This competition, which is now in its fifth year, was sponsored by the Committee of French Advisors for Foreign Trade in the UK (CCEF) and organised by the French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE in the UK.
Ms Sylvie Bermann, French Ambassador to the United Kingdom, underlined the fact that the UK is, year on year, the third or fourth destination worldwide in terms of the number of young VIEs in post. Today, there are more than 700 VIEs employed in 215 companies throughout the country.
The VIE Programme, which is run by French export-support agency UBIFRANCE, gives young graduates from across the European Economic Area (EEA), which includes all EU countries, the opportunity to spend up to two years on an assignment outside France, working for the local subsidiary of a French-based business. The young VIEs must be under the age of 28 and posted in a country other than their country of origin. The VIE programme offers a range of advantages to companies; through the scheme, companies are able to source talent and recruit future executives.
The candidates for the Grand Prix VIE 2014 in the UK were asked to present the mission and the projects that had been assigned to them over the course of their contract. Each candidate submitted a written file and those who were shortlisted were asked to present their work to a jury, which then chose two overall winners.
Olivier Morel, President of the Committee of French Advisors for Foreign Trade in the UK (CCEF), outlined the quality of the candidates, who all had an impressive array of competencies and showed initiative, creativity, enthusiasm and strength of character, making the final decision a difficult one for the members of the jury.
Lauren Prigent, Risk Assessment Engineer at GDF SUEZ E&P UK, was awarded First Prize in the Large Corporates Category. In the same category, the jury decided to award a Special Mention Prize to Shairah Djouma of Sanofi UK.
First Prize in the SME Category went to Andrea Ghezzi who, as part of his contract with the trade association for the promotion and development of mechanical industries in France, carried out commercial prospecting for three companies — AHG, Lathuille Hudry, and Mure et Peyrot. In the same category, the Special Mention Prize was awarded to Farah Cohen for her work at Amiral Holding, a French SME.
Olivier Morel believes that the diversity of the assignments undertaken by the prize winners underlines the variety of projects entrusted to VIE employees. Other projects presented to the jury included risk analysis in hydrocarbon production, marketing in the health sector, commercial development for three SMEs in the mechanical sector, and the management of airport spas.
Thanks to the generosity of the members of CCEF, as well as Air France, Brasserie Blanc, Cirque du Soleil and Renault Trucks, the winners also received a selection of prizes alongside their trophies.
For further information about the VIE scheme and its advantages for both young graduates and the companies that employ them, please do not hesitate to contact Hervé Ochsenbein, Director of the French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE in the UK.

Electronics and IT
In 2013, there was a 12% year-on-year rise in cybersecurity attacks, with nearly 60% of them causing either brand damage or direct revenue loss to businesses. This, coupled with highly publicized commercial and government breaches of IT security, has increased the demand for cybersecurity services. French companies are strongly placed in this growing market and their advanced solutions are in demand.
The 12% year-on-year increase in cybersecurity attacks that affected businesses in 2013 (Source: IBM 2014 Cyber Security Intelligence Index), regrettable as it may be, translates into the fact that the IT-security sector is experiencing sustained growth in this segment of the market. High-profile cases, such as the cyber-attacks on US retail chain Target, have raised awareness among business executives.
While US-based and British companies dominate current business in this sector, client entities are looking for alternatives in order to alleviate their worries of government intrusion. In this respect, French specialist companies are a strong contender in the eyes of many professionals and executives working for SMEs and start-ups, but also at established, larger groups: these clients are leveraging the French know-how stemming from top R&D centres and universities.
In 2013, the French cybersecurity sector was valued at more than $2 billion. The French network-security sector offers a wide range of services, including B2B IT solutions meeting strategic challenges, and comprises many world champions such as Atos, Orange, Sogeti, Bull, Cassidian and the cybersecurity division at Thales.
Thanks to their advanced technical research laboratories, more particularly in cryptology and encryption, French players are recognized worldwide. According to Thibaut Barde, UBIFRANCE’s Project Manager for Digital Trust & Cyber Security, “The reason for cutting-edge technology [thriving in France] is the quality of French universities in the field of engineering, which is known globally. Research laboratories associated with these universities train the best engineers of tomorrow.”
Secure IC SAS is a shining example of a company that has been working with top graduates having come out of the French educational system in order to become a thought leader in cybersecurity. Its platforms provide the highest level of security on a client entity’s embedded systems, preventing hacking and reverse engineering as well as protecting intellectual property and proprietary data. In 2013, Secure IC SAS won a Sesame Award for innovation in the manufacturing and testing of IT products.
French start-ups and SMEs have developed out of a strong domestic talent pool and many have decided to join forces under the HexaTrust label, which regroups 20 hi-tech SMEs that are keen to offer a co-ordinated, total service package to their clients. These software vendors and integrators provide a full range of products and services dedicated to the protection of the critical infrastructure of businesses and institutions from cyber-attacks. The HexaTrust umbrella group’s portfolio of current and potential clients is diverse and growing, including businesses and public-sector agencies of all sizes.
Due to the dramatic increase in the level of sophistication and intensity of cyber-attacks, public- and private-sector investment in cybersecurity is growing fast and is expected to rise by nearly 10% per year between now and 2017. This trend illustrates the promising opportunities that exist for a large business looking for a new market, or for a dynamic SME scaling up a new product.
Thibaut Barde of UBIFRANCE Paris explains that, “France’s distance from recent scandals [involving the international and covert collection of data by various government agencies, as revealed in the media] is favourable for French players since awareness on the use of data takes place at a global level. This has helped to build the profile of the industry and has generated increasing concerns for [the security of] personal data, which is a real asset for the French in particular: it is important when it comes to data-storage companies, among others.”
Many French companies in the sector are choosing to develop an international business outlook. French players have strong opportunities to seize in this market thanks to their technological expertise, combined with the diversity of products and services they can offer.
UBIFRANCE is here to help, with a strong presence at next year’s Infosecurity Europe trade event, where there will be as many as 15 French companies looking to expand their presence into the British market and other European markets. Infosecurity Europe will take place from 2 to 4 June 2015 at the Olympia exhibition centre, in central London (UK).
