July 19, 2021 - BIC is honored to be recognized by L’Institut Choiseul in the 2021 ranking of Les Nouveaux Conquérants de l’Economie, or “the new conquerors of the economy.” Each year, the Institute pays tribute to 150 businesses that are selected based on their positive impacts on the French economy. BIC was recognized in the “international conqueror” category for being “driven by an ambitious strategy of international projection” and for “pushing the boundaries of growth.” 

L’Institut Choiseul is an independent French think tank dedicated to the analysis of international strategic issues and global economic governance. Based in Paris, its main goal is to create opportunities for dialogue surrounding current economic, political and societal topics among key decision makers and influential leaders.  

In addition to recognizing the “new conquerors of the economy,” L’Institut Choiseul identifies top talents throughout the year, including the Choiseul 100 ranking of the top 100 young French business leaders under the age of 40, and the Choiseul 100 Sport & Business 

This year, in order to select and rank the “new conquerors of the economy”, the Institute called on numerous experts and screened several hundred companies across industry sectors.  

BIC is proud to have been included in l’Institut Choiseul rankings since 2018. BIC CEO Gonzalve Bich is also as a Choiseul 100 alumni.
