We share cars, apartments and now even startups. Paris and New York have just launched a project so entrepreneurs can share their experiences in the European and American continent.

The French agency for development and innovation PARIS&CO and its counterpart New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) have signed an agreement for French startups to gain experience, learn and enjoy the opportunities offered by New York, and to encourage New York businesses to locate and create jobs in Paris.

Those selected - applications can be submitted until November 30- are entitled to six free months in a co- working space, meetings with investors in the host city, meetings with potential customers for each company or with the leaders of the same sector who will act as mentors.

The intention of the exchange is that the two cities share their experiences and knowledge. Each city plans to host 10 startups.
