Why is Lyon a great place to start you business?


Lyon is one of the best places to invest in France, and even in Europe. It is located in the middle of Western Europe, with quick access to Spain, Italy, Germany and the United Kingdom.

High quality of life and services

Lyon is also one of the best cities to invest in France. Real estate and the cost of living are much lower than in Paris, while offering the same level and quality of services and leisure. There are multiple universities that train students in a lot of sectors: law and economy (Jean Moulin University Lyon 3), business and management (ESCE International Business School, Emlyon Business School…) or science, technology and engineering (Claude Bernard University Lyon 1), etc. In those institutions, you will find new talents to strengthen your teams!

The quality of life is also renowned. Lyon attracts many new habitants from all over the world every year. It is for example known for its incredible cuisine, with many specialties such as quenelles or tabliers de sapeur, served in typical little restaurants known as “bouchons”.

It is also well known for its Parc de la Tête d’Or (Golden Head Park): 117 hectares of nature in the centre of the city, with a lake. Lyon is also home to many museums (Musée des Confluences, Fine Arts Museum…) and concert halls. For all these reasons, Lyon is a great place to live, which makes it easier to attract you future collaborators!

Lyon has always been an economic powerhouse within France. Nowadays, traditional sectors are still thriving, while new sectors have been emerging with time. Today, the digital industry is very present, thanks to the many tech companies that chose Lyon, such as Agicap ou Lumapps. In recent decades, the city has also strengthened its cleantech sector, with Boralex, InovaYa or Inevo Technologies.

Scientific research is also an important sector in Lyon. There are currently 550 public laboratories, including the French National Centre for Scientific Research, the largest fundamental science agency in Europe. The University of Lyon is also renowned. Immunology, oncology, nutrition and health and neuroscience are some of the most thriving local fields of research.

Finally, tourism, with a focus on ecotourism, is also one of the most important economic sectors in Lyon. Each year, 6 million visitors come to visit the Basilica Notre-Dame de Fourvière, the Institut Lumière, the medieval city and to enjoy the local gastronomy.
