Presentation of the scheme

The incubator is located at 30 rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine (75012) and at 28 rue Faidherbe (75011).

Created in 2006, the incubator Les Ateliers de Paris is dedicated to the development of creative companies in the design, fashion and craft sectors that combine creativity, innovation and commitment. 

The Les Ateliers de Paris incubator is one of the components of the city's policy to support the creative professions, a significant sector of activity for Paris in terms of economic development and employment, cultural and tourist dynamism, revitalization of neighborhoods and international influence.

Design, fashion and crafts are essential levers of transformation within our society - whether it is a question of creating new imaginations, conceiving new uses or responding to societal and environmental issues.

Thus, the City of Paris wishes to support the emergence of committed projects and encourage a positive impact economy: responsible fashion, new uses and new materials, innovation and hybridization of know-how, local manufacturing, new economic models.
