Our company France Labs was established in 2011. Its founders come from SAP Research in Sophia-Antipolis, and they love open source and innovation. France Labs is the only startup that was accepted at the two incubators of Sophia Antipolis. We aim at creating the best enterprise search solution with Datafari, as well as being the recognised leader in France on Apache Lucene/Solr and Elasticsearch expertise.
