The Rencontres Internationales de la French Tech (RIFT) is Business France's flagship event dedicated to tech professionals and innovative companies with an export project. The new edition, which will take place on December 3, 2020, will focus on the theme of export recovery for innovative French companies.

Focusing on the theme of international development, these meetings allow French start-ups and innovative SMEs to understand global trends, to benefit from the feedbacks of companies that have taken the step to international development and to meet the ecosystem players and market specialists of Business France. 

As the main source of growth for French SMEs, the export has been clearly identified as an essential pillar of the recovery plan for the French economy, and a lever for companies to exit the crisis. The aim of this new edition is to give French innovative companies the keys to conquer foreign markets again.
