I’ve been in the French tech industry since 2009 and as far as I remember I’ve never seen 2 weeks like what we’ve just seen in France.
Blablacar raised a megaround to further speed up its growth. Deezer & Showroomprive announced their IPO. OVH laid out big expansions plans announcing $1B turnover by 2018. Leetchi got bought. Maturing startup iAdvize announced a large serie B fundraising. Newly born startups like Livementor announced their seed round (with tech entrepreneurs fund ISAI and angels like Nicolas Brusson from Blablacar & Thibaud Elzières from Fotolia).
All that in ~10 days. In France. Wow!
