Under this title, which will make Occitanists tear their hair out, are grouped together entrepreneurs and their partners who want to benefit from the national French Tech label, which distinguishes French innovation. The association will organize events and meetings between its actors, the department’s startups and all those who want to get closer.

The office is also made up of Emanuele Monderna (vice-president and secretary), the CEO of Dermoioniq, who went through the H24 incubator and which manufactures cosmetics based on sturgeon skin in the Dordogne, and Régis Braun (vice-president and treasurer), industrial director of Fybots, a manufacturer of cleaning robots based in Brantôme.
