Welcoming fledgling entrepreneurs
A territory for startups
In November, 2014 Toulon welcomed its first Start-up Weekend at "Canteen by TVT innovation" venue. 80 participants met a major challenge: finding an idea and setting-up a startup within 54 hours.
About 150,000 tweets were sent on that occasion. Toulon can be proud of having been crowned the World champion of the Global Start-up Battle. The keyword *swtln was among the 10 top keywords used on Twitter in France for several hours.
