My opinion on "Is Paris the next start-up hotspot?" article was published in the Financial Times under the segment "MBA view" where business school students discussed what it takes for Paris to become Europe’s tech hub.

Rather than having Paris or any other city as the hottest tech capital, a much more interesting exercise for European leaders would be to allow each country to focus on core differentiation. Let Paris be the food-tech capital, Stockholm the reference for fintech, Berlin the digital-health hub and Lisbon the go-to place for cleantech."
