The 387 companies that make up this mapping are French FinTech, entrepreneurial, established and substantially active at the end of 2020. These FinTech companies are transforming the banking, insurance and asset management businesses by offering new financial products or digital solutions that enable financial industry players to optimize their business processes.

They are grouped by sector of activity and seniority in order to measure their entrepreneurial dynamics over the last few years. An analysis of fundraising by sector also helps to anticipate changes in the financial industry.

“The digital transformation of every economic player has reached an unprecedented pace during this very special year 2020. In this context, the pivotal role of the financial industry has proven to be fundamental and startups have been able to resist thanks to their structural assets. French FinTech startups have thus seen their strategic positioning, dynamism and international attractiveness significantly strengthened in 2020. Many developments point to the first French unicorns that will join the 24 European FinTech unicorns already identified and whose number has increased sixfold since 2016. More than ever, the French Fin&Tech scene offers great prospects. »
