  1. 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.

We had the privilege to sit with Tally and hear his incredible story, with a journey starting in an underprivileged suburban area north of Paris, that would soon lead him on a dangerous path. A passionate child dreaming to go to space and loving cars from his young age, Tally was drawn early on to stealing the cars he could not afford and sell them to make a living as his family's situation was getting worse. But who said life did not give second chances ? Listen to Tally explain the transformational experience he went through at a time he could have felt hopeless and lonely, and how he instead managed to get out of a vicious circle and find his new path forward.
