This is madness. After Receiving from IBM an International Beacon Award in February and a Startup of the Year award in March, SaveCode has just received on April 5th the confirmation of its selection to integrate Station F, the biggest Startups center of the World.
Station F is the dream of Xavier Niel, who’s transforming a historic monument, the Halle Freyssinet in the 13th arrondissement of Paris- France, into a gigantic hive of digital innovation. 34,000 square meters, 3,000+ workstations, 10+ international start-up programs, 1 makerspace, 1 restaurant, 4 kitchens, 1 café, 1 bar, 24/7, 8 event spaces. .. we will be able to receive …
We were selected in the first promotion of the Founder’s Program and will be among the first tenants of this gigantic pole of innovation, which will bring together the entire digital world ecosystem. Facebook, Zendesk and Vente Privée have already confirmed their installation. And other global flagships should soon join the place.
We were selected by a committee of 100 successful entrepreneurs from 21 different countries (USA, Russia, Spain, Canada, Turkey, Germany, China etc.). They analyzed for each candidate “teams, products and markets”. The full list of breeders can be found here. Among them, Eric Wahlfoss, co-founder of Soundcloud, Salomon Hykes, founder of Docker, Quentin Sannié, co-founder of Devialet, and Soraya Darabi, founder of Zady.com, but also founder of Zopim, Secret Media, BIME Analytics, Spartoo, Withings and many more.
Why did we decide to join Station F? We feel comfortable in our current offices (WorkInParis) and appreciate the exchange and sharing with our co-tenants, all innovative and dynamic startups. But Station F’s pole of attraction to accompany our growth abroad is a tremendous opportunity that we can not afford to miss. So, we will leave with a little regret WorkInParis Cardinet to move to the Halle Freyssinet in early July 2017, and while moving from west to east Paris, we take a new step in our development.
