The “Paris Region International Business Location” label, which was set up by the Ile-de-France Region and the ARD (Regional Development Agency), identifies places best suited to house and develop international companies. This label was awarded to the Val d’Europe small business incubator, La Forge 3.0.
Well-defined criteria apply to this distinction:
- access to Paris region and international transport networks
- hosting: ability to provide a rapid response to incoming companies
- provision of a dedicated English speaking contact offering support to companies in various aspects of their creation project
- services and benefits proposed
- attractive rents
This label will give the business incubator visibility on ARD promotional material (flyers, “business tours” …) and privileged access to the resources of the regional development agency (document base for international companies, legal boards and preferential tax rate …).
