Originally, in the Middle Ages, the SENTIER district was considered as one of the most dangerous of Paris!
Delimited by rue Montmartre the Boulevard Sébastopol, Poissonnière, Bonne Nouvelle and Réaumur Street, the Sentier already serves as "decor" to the novels of Balzac in the mid-nineteenth century, for his character Maximilien Longueville fabric vendor rue du Sentier, in his novel the ball of Sceaux, published in 1830!
We are very far from "La vérité si je mens" moovie comedy of 1996 narrating the tribulations of fashion ready-to-wear manufacturer: textile trade, manufacturing via short-term channels and workshops adjoining wholesaler's showroom, haberdashery, leatherworkers or subcontractors!
During the rising phase of the internet bubble (1997-2000), fifty start-up companies set up in the Sentier district, including Yahoo! and Nomad: a new adventure begins! The bursting of this one will lead to the closing of many companies in  2000

All the Frenchies did not moove to Silicon Valley in California, even if they are estimated between 35 and 40 000 to have expatriated to imagine the future!

Silicon Sentier is an association created in the early 2000s to try to form a strong network of French start-ups in the Internet sector. Successful bet. In September the association will move street from  rue du Caire to Paris in huge offices to gather its 3 components dedicated to entrepreneurs: Silicon Experience, Camping, Canteen ... And this last one has become the meeting place of the Web startuppers.

BETWEEN GRANTS OF PARIS CITY AND success of the French Tech

Silicon Sentier, an association friend of Anne Hidalgo, had decided to relocate all of its activities in a space of 1500 m² located rue du Caire . This installation work  was helped at  80% by the city. In total, these installation works cost 2.4 million euros! But do not panic for Silicon Sentier, since Anne Hidalgo and the mayor of Paris are behind her for financing and subsidies.

Incubators Providing Accompaniment and Networking make the Silicon Sentier a place where 17000 entrepreneurs spend each year through the Silicon Trail and its Canteen

Silicon Sentier "since 2000, is the first entrepreneurial association to establish rue du Caire in a former textile factory of the 2nd district, and initiates the deep transformation of the district. It's the first coworking space, the first startup accelerator and the first open innovation program. Since April 2014, Silicon Sentier has become Numa (contraction of "digital" and "human") and has become international. At the same time incubator, coworking space, reception center for conferences, workshops and Fab-Lab, Numa is the showcase of Parisian entrepreneurship.
