To support businesses in their start-up, growth and maturity phases, Paris offers several accommodation options for entrepreneurs.

At the start-up phase: start-up incubators and business developers incubators

A start-up incubator is a structure that supports business start-ups, helping take them from the initial idea to the creation and consolidation of a structured project.
Business development incubators are aimed at people with business start-up projects and businesses that are already validated by a support structure.

At the development phase: nurseries

These are structures that provide reception, accommodation, assistance and support for start-ups. 
The business nursery is located downstream of the incubator. It corresponds to the company’s commercial launch and development phase.

Business clusters
The City of Paris has 26 business clusters. Also known as business development centres, these facilities provide businesses with business premises at prices to suit their financial capacities.
