For several years now, Métropole Nice Côte d’Azur has been committed to a farranging economic transformation that is turning it into a model for sustainable smart cities.

Through development of major infrastructure projects (the Allianz Riviera stadium, Promenade du Paillon and the new West-East tramwayline), implementation of the Nice ÉcoVallée, which is creating a new and varied real-estate offer for incoming companies, setup of a European Business and Innovation Center (a business nursery accommodating and supporting innovative young companies) and structuring of our training offer, we have taken the necessary steps to strengthen our attractiveness and foster creation, location and development of enterprises.

Today, this fresh momentum is being translated in concrete terms, and the partnerships concluded with such leading industrial concerns as BOSCH, CISCO, EDF, ENEDIS, ENGIE, IBM, ORANGE, SCHNEIDER ELECTRIC, THALÈS, VEOLIA…, the development of high-potential SMEs and the many startups seeing the light of day all go to confirm that Nice Côte d’Azur has become a center of innovation, excellence and entrepreneurship.

An outstanding territory set between sea and mountain and connected to over 110 direct destinations worldwide, which has built an enviable reputation on its remarkable landscapes, the mildness of its climate and the promise of an incomparable quality of life, Nice Côte d’Azur is also a destination that opens it arms to entrepreneurs.

We extend our warmest thanks, then, to the companies that have already placed their trust in us, and bid welcome to all of you who envisage joining us.
