eBay At The Heart Of France’s Next40 Events

September 23, 2019

Recently the eBay France team was heavily involved in the events surrounding the nomination of 40 companies as part of France’s “Next40” initiative. Céline Saada-Benaben, General Manager for eBay in France, was a member of the independent jury that had the task of choosing the selection criteria for the best performing start-ups on the French market.

Last week, Céline Saada-Benaben was present at the Elysée palace for the public announcement of the Next40 initiative and of the 5 billion euros in investment funds made by French President Macron. The next morning, eBay joined the other members of the jury and Ministers Bruno Le Maire and Cédric O to welcome the laureates into the Next40 system. Finally, eBay also participated in France Digitale Day, a startup-networking event that followed this institutional introduction.

In France, more than 20,000 companies choose to offer their products on eBay. French innovation and excellence are continually on display on eBay, a marketplace that demonstrates solid knowledge of the French technology sphere through its commitment in the Next40 initiative.
