Founded in 1978, L’Atelier BNP Paribas became in 2003 a 100%-owned subsidiary of the BNP Paribas Group. Today L’Atelier’s three main areas of expertise are Prospective Research, Business Transformation Consulting Services and Business Acceleration Programmes. Our teams working in these three fields collaborate closely, enabling L’Atelier BNP Paribas to detect and track emerging trends and help our clients and partners to prepare for and take full advantage of them. 


L’Atelier BNP Paribas has a total of 50 staff working between the Paris headquarters and our ‘listening posts’ in San Francisco and Shanghai. Their mission is to help both the BNP Paribas Group and its clients to adapt to the changes taking place in the digital era and guide their decision-making so that they are able to fully embrace and capitalise on the digital transformation of society and business. 


The basic goal of L’Atelier is to use its contacts, network and analytical capabilities to develop a long-term view that can be applied to advantage in the shorter term. We strive to take a proactive approach to current and emerging issues, cutting-edge knowhow and innovative products and services. And we always seek to stay ahead of the curve on trends and promising ideas so that we can help our clients to move at exactly the right moment and optimise their product/service time-to-market.
