The American startup from Silicon Valley (California) chose Lyon for the creation of its French office and an Android R&D centre, in particular for the rich pool of talents in software development to be found in this area.


The company received help from Aderly, in particular in their search for premises adapted to their business needs, for advice on human resources, and to get a foothold in the business ecosystem of Lyon.

Started up in 2008, Evernote has 370 employees and boasts more than one million users worldwide. The company has developed a smart platform that enables users to manage all of their productions on their smartphone or tablet, by tagging them directly or retrieving them later on their computer.

The application offers a simple, efficient and user-friendly system for capturing information in the form of notes, images, videos, or web pages, as well as bookmarking web pages, recording a vocal memo, saving a photo, creating lists, scheduling reminders, etc.

Two-thirds of Evernote users use it for work. This is why the startup recently set up a version for companies and is currently seeking to accelerate its innovation.
