The economy of the City of Paris is based largely on services and commerce; of the 390,480 enterprises in the city, 80.6 percent are engaged in commerce, transportation, and diverse services, 6.5 percent in construction, and just 3.8 percent in industry. The largest sectors of activity in the central business district were finance and insurance. The southern part of the 15th arrondissement, is a centre of activity for the media and information technology. The Paris Region economy has gradually shifted from industry to high-value-added service industries (finance, IT services) and high-tech manufacturing (electronics, optics, aerospace, etc.)
In 2018, Paris was the most expensive city in the world with Singapore and Hong Kong. Station F is a business incubator for startups, located in 13th arrondissement of Paris. Noted as the world’s largest startup facility.
Paris has grown exponentially as a sci-tech hub in recent years and is quickly becoming one of the most attractive cities in Europe for sci-tech companies, investors and entrepreneurs to set up shop.
Banking and insurance are the largest sectors of employment in Paris, and therefore the city’s fintech sector is a strong pursuit for tech workers.
However, the city’s biotech sector is also something to behold, especially for those working in the industry thinking about a change of scenery from impressive firms with IPOs to newer players such as Runlabs, a UK company due to open a brand new biotech lab and accelerator in Paris.
While the city already has established fintech and biotech industries, mathematician Cédric Villani’s plan is to make France an AI leader. With such a tech scene, if you are looking to work or settle in Paris, here are the best coworking spaces to look at.
