Roxanne Varza is the director of Station F in Paris

We feel particularly strong about diversity as a value, as we believe it is what powers innovation. Having people with similar profiles working on similar projects won’t lead to interesting innovations. For that reason, we’ve really emphasized diversity in our value system: we want men and women coming from all countries, underprivileged entrepreneurs, etc. We have a programme specifically for people who self-identify as being underprivileged, for example. To us, this kind of diversity is really where the most interesting innovation is coming from.
