Following a competitive pitching process that whittled 173 startups down to 17, Mention Me has been selected to be in Lafayette’s Plug and Play startup accelerator programme.
Designed to help startups boost their growth in France, the programme will see us open office space in Paris from September and support our efforts to accelerate growth, expand our client base and release new product features designed around the French market.
As well as helping us form new strategic partnerships with brands in France, the milestone will support our already existing partnerships with the likes of Feelunique, Seraphine, Farfetch, Missguided and MATCHESFASHION.com.
“We’re incredibly excited to be at the stage where we can move confidently forward with building a reputation in France,” says Andy Cockburn, our CEO. “With recent stats from Fevad stating that the online retail industry of France was worth 92.6 billion euros at the end of last year, this is a market that is thriving and opportune for marketing solutions in retail. We look forward to growing existing clients’ French campaigns and working with new ones.”
As the premier business accelerator for the retail and e-commerce industries, run in partnership with Galeries Lafayette, we can’t wait to see where this new adventure takes us.
Watch this space! (Or, should we say, à très vite!)
