An initiative dedicated to women entrepreneurs around the world


Like all other Orange Fab France programs, the objective of “Women Start” will be to build business partnerships between start-ups founded by women and Orange market lines or Orange partners in France and internationally. This will be done while ensuring the managerial support of the start-ups during the acceleration, with the support of internal and external mentors.


In addition, this program allows start-ups to benefit from very high visibility and access to the Orange Fabs network, which is a very concrete asset of Orange, with 18 Orange Fabs around the world, on 4 continents.
