In our increasingly connected world, investors are more and more faced with complex choices when deciding what the right move is.


Formulate a glocal strategy has become vital

Developing synergies between ICT and the tourism industry, while offering virtual ubiquity, can lead to neglecting the local aspect of business development strategy. Having a glocal strategy will go a long way towards helping you manage your brand’s worldwide presence, reduce translation costs and get campaigns to market faster, all leading to increased demand generation and ultimately revenue.


A travel industry-specialized incubator

Driven by the recent opening of the Welcome City Lab in Paris, Lille will open its own travel-only incubator in 2016; “La Maison Du Tourisme”. Focused on innovative businesses, it holds the role of a traditional incubator while offering a dedicated space for both private businesses and public institutions such as the tourism office, hence catalyzing integrated creative innovations, PPP and funding opportunities.


Lille: a buzzing city

“French Tech” labeled, Lille and its exceptionally well-connected location – half-way between London, Paris, Amsterdam and Brussels – is a perfect anchor to expand your market share onto French and Benelux markets.

With 3 international incubators in the ICT and internationally recognized graduate schools (EDHEC, Les Mines, Centrale…), it has a highly-skilled, globally aware, locally trained talent pool. Cheaper.
