The Station F startup campus in Paris welcomed its first stream of new residents this week.

Marketed as the ‘world’s largest startup campus’ the revamped former train station opened its doors to the next generation of game changers on 3 July, after a ceremonial launch by French president Emmanuel Macron a few days before.

“Station F is now officially open and we have started welcoming our first startups and partners to the campus this week,” Roxanne Varza – director at Station F – blogged.

By the end of the week, she said about two thirds of the 26 different programs had arrived, “including Facebook, vente-privée, Ubisoft, Microsoft, Zendesk, HEC, EDHEC, Schoolab, Ponts Alliance, Arts & Métiers, Outre-Mer Network, Numa, Usine.io and Ashoka.”
