Transforming a former boiler-making factory into a digital innovation hub was the bold move made by H7, the emblematic venue for French Tech in Lyon. This unique space, connected to the quarter and the metropolitan area, offers 350 workstations for new companies and startups in digital technologies. And others as well!
More and more companies, small businesses and shopkeepers are choosing La Confluence because it offers a central location, easy access and pleasant living. 1,650 companies form a well-balanced, dynamic economic structure. They appreciate the quality of life in the quarter, its businesses and services and the relationships they form between them.
Lyon Confluence encourages the neighbourhood's users to initiate projects that improve everyone's quality of life. Circular, social and solidarity-based economy, social links, etc. La Confluence supports citizen projects aimed at improving quality of life in a sustainable and solidarity-based city.
The neighbourhood is being developed for and with its users. This collaborative approach is a driving force behind Lyon Confluence. The objective: to better understand everyone's expectations, to encourage the participation of residents, employees, visitors and also the business community in the planning process.
Following its history of port and logistics activity, La Confluence long remained an isolated neighbourhood, situated "behind the arches" of Perrache. In 2003, two centuries after its conquest of the waters, the district was reborn and took control of its destiny.
