STATION F, the world's largest startup campus, only accepts new members through its programs.
In total, STATION F hosts around 30 programs. One third of these are managed by large corporations such as Microsoft, Thales, Meta, LVMH, Binance, and many others. Another third are overseen by schools like HEC, EDHEC, CentraleSupélec or Télécom. The remaining programs are run by networks of entrepreneurs like Entrepreneur First or MooveLab. Each program focuses on a specific sector and vertical, operates independently, and has its own selection process. They decide the duration of a startup's stay, whether they provide free office space, and whether they take company shares or not.
