About Rocamadour

A little clifftop village that tourists are drawn to, Rocamadour is famous for its complex of religious buildings that you have to climb the Grand Escalier staircase to get to. History buffs will love this site, as there is a Black Madonna statue to gawk at, the Chapelle Notre-Dame to poke your nose into and the Romanesque-Gothic Basilica of St Sauveur to meander around. You can even chat to the macaques roaming wildly in the La Foret des Singes, if no one else will talk to you or check out some feathered friends at the bird park, Rocher des Aigles. Pilgrims have been invading this village for eons, from kings to bishops and nobles. Its stunning gorge setting perched above the River Dordogne is literally a feast for the eyes. The fact that coworking venues have appeared in the town speaks volumes about its intrepid innovative locals or maybe it's the powers of above lending a bit of a guiding hand.

Everything is changing in France at the moment with reforms aimed to help startups, rather than hinder them. Efforts are being made to open both its economy and its borders to tech startups. Today it is far easier to hire and fire in France, which has lead to making labor costs far more predictable and France is now offering easy-to-access French Tech visas, so that tech savvy souls can live and work in France. It's interesting to note that 50% of French youth aged 18-24 and 70% of graduates from the prestigious flagship university, Ecole Polytechnique, want to work for startups. The French mentality is evolving and taking into account the whole world, not just its own country.

France is coming into its own in the tech industries race with government and big business supporting and creating a nurturing environment for its creative individuals. The opening of coworking venues is merely one more step in the ecosystem that may see France leading the European scene.
