Cap Digital is the French Digital Innovation Hub for digital and ecological transformation in the Paris Region, the first digital innovation ecosystem and the largest business cluster in Europe.
Cap Digital was created as a result of a public policy for the development of economic sectors with strong growth potential located in the same geographical area. Since 2006, the cluster has been implementing the Paris Region’s strategy for digital content and services, supporting innovative SMEs in this field.
In May 2018, Cap Digital integrated Advancity, the French cluster supporting sustainable urban innovation and has thus enlarged its ecosystem with new members active in four domains: EcoTechnologies, EcoMobility, EcoConstruction and EcoCity. By gathering stakeholders of digital transformation and energy transition, Cap Digital is now the first European cluster of Future and Sustainable Cities.
In January 2020, Cap Digital continues to grow and decided to join its forces with the Pôle des Industries du Commerce (called PICOM), an innovation cluster dedicated to retail in France since 2006, in order to develop cross-functional collaborations with their respective members, particularly in the field of data, artificial intelligence, urban space and the mobility of tomorrow.
Our +1000 members are primarily innovative SMEs but also major universities, higher education establishments, research labs, corporations focused on a specific technology-driven industry and investors.
Our members represent French digital industry’s most active players.
