France's Startup Blog
Introduction
The Rude Baguette - France's Startup Blog - is France’s first English-language news site covering startups, tech, and innovation. Founded in 2011, Rude Baguette covers Tech, Mobile & Web new in Paris, France, highlighting French entrepreneurs & Investors who are building great companies.

Rude Baguette boasts a well mixed audience of French(~50%) & International readers(~50%), particularly in the UK, US, Germany & Canada. French readers enjoy articles like 4 French startup names that really don’t work in English, while international readers learn a fair amount about the French startup scene through articles like 10 French entrepreneurs who attended Stanford

In the most recent Startup Genome Report, Paris was placed at #11 for the top startup cities, in between Berlin(#15) and London(#7). It has reached Independent status, according to the report.

Rude Baguette has been cited by writers from TechCrunch, Pandodaily, GigaOm, TheNextWeb, Wall Street Journal & more as the reference for the French startup scene. In addition to writing about French startups, we also write about large French tech companies (and their role in the startup scene), as well as covering international startups & multinationals, and news related to their activity (or lack thereof) in France.
