Federating women in the digital sector in a single day wasn’t enough. In 2016, JFD launches its growth accelerator.
Born out of an observation, raised thanks to the exclusive Women’s Day 2016 study carried out in partnership with Capgemini and French Tech: 93% of the women interviewed felt that networking was a real opportunity to change and develop their careers.
An exclusive women’s network, a player in the promotion of entrepreneurship, intra-entrepreneurship and female innovation, it is a unique 300-square-meter space in the heart of Paris, inaugurated by Marlène Schiappa, Secretary of State Responsible for Equality between women and men, in 2017.
Supported by Delphine Ernotte, CEO France Télévisions and godmother of the JFD France which has nearly 400 members and intends to meet the demands and needs of these women by giving them the opportunity to meet, share experiences, source creativity ,innovation and finance.

It runs all year round with the organization of private tours, exclusive events, cultural previews and with the highlight of JFD.
