Hold Tight Podcast

Nico and Tam from Hold Tight bring you stories from the people at Station F, the world's largest startup campus ever built.



Hold Tight podcast explores the untold stories behind some exciting projects developing at Station F, the world's largest startup campus in downtown Paris. 

In each episode Tam and Nico get to dig deep into the background of some of the most promising people and ventures growing out of this unique environment. 

Our goal with Hold Tight is not only to share inspiring stories and lessons from people thriving to make a global impact, but also to document the evolution of a brand new startup ecosystem through the perspective of its residents. 

We hope that by showing a new face of Paris as a growing innovation hub our podcast attracts more people and ideas to the City of Lights and inspires them to give a new meaning to their entrepreneurial endeavors.
