Partner Incubator: Paris&Co - Welcome City Lab

About Paris&Co - Welcome City Lab:

The Welcome City Lab is an innovation platform dedicated to tourism. Our goal is to position Paris as the innovation leader in urban tourism.

In order to do all that, we have developed four key expertises:

  • incubation (we accompany and support startups that create today how you will travel tomorrow);
  • academy (we make our startups to acquire tourism skills, sensitize tourism professionals to innovation and make it possible for people to meet and collaborate);
  • experimentation (we test these products and services with our partners to ensure they stick closer to market expectations);
  • and economic intelligence (we identify trends in tourism innovation and ensure an international monitoring mission).
