Symfony: A first choice for French Tech startups


Last month at the Elysee Palace, French President Emmanuel Macron unveiled the Next40, the Top40 gems of the French Tech. Symfony is the favorite development framework for these companies.

Symfony reaffirmed its position as the leading development framework for fast-growing French startups. Next40 index, curated by the French Tech and disclosed by President Macron at the Elysee Palace in front of an audience of entrepreneurs, includes a significant amount of startups using Symfony as their base for web development.

Next40 companies will be the future French digital champions: they are now experiencing hypergrowth. They therefore need web applications that easily support rapid scalability. Symfony brings them the robustness they need to cope with scalability and visibility for the coming years thanks to a clear roadmap. Symfony, an Open-Source framework publicly available for free, has already been download for free over 3 billion times worldwide.

At least 17 of the 40 Next40 gems use Symfony within their technical stack, in various industries such as E-Commerce (Mano Mano), transportation or services (Meero, Deezer). You can also notice that half of the French Tech expected-Unicorns uses Symfony, which is quite meaningful!

Symfony stands as a first choice in startups technological options. Thanks to a vibrant community of passionate developers and contributors, Symfony also belongs to the French Tech success stories.
