As a French digital player in the Indian Ocean, Reunion Island has achieved European standards, enjoys economic, political and monetary stability, and responds to emerging African needs, while bringing its intercultural understanding to the multiple ecosystems of this region of the world. Reunion Island is a bridge, a strategic crossroads between two economic zones, Europe and Africa.

Based on this premise, Digital Reunion organizes, since 2016, the NxSE Forum whose constant theme is "Digital Transformation - Indian Ocean / Africa". Unique of its kind, NxSE brings together digital players from the entire Africa / IO zone in one place, Reunion Island. The mission of NxSE is to create synergies between these 3 territories, to build up the skills of companies/startups in these areas by focusing on feedback and business trends.


Created in 1997 at the request of professionals in the digital sector in Reunion Island, the association brings together the main market players involved directly and indirectly in the digital sector (companies, start-ups, groups, unions, institutions, training organizations ...). It has 135 members (end 2019) and represents more than 80% of jobs and annual turnover in the sector.

La French Tech

French Tech is an entrepreneurial initiative with a global reach, helping to make France a country where start-ups can be born, grow and become successful companies capable of making a positive impact on our country and expanding internationally.

In 2016, Reunion was the only overseas territory to benefit from the precious "French Tech" sesame for the e-health sector, followed by the more inclusive label, Communauté French tech en 2019.

The dynamism of the sector is due to the proactive support provided by the local authorities and a series of tax and social security measures introduced by the State to encourage the creation of new companies, such as the "Research Tax Credit", which is higher than in mainland France and which allows companies to benefit from 50% of their payroll allocated to R&D.

Our philosophy: to support and rely on entrepreneurs to move the lines.
