73% of freelancers live in cities.
Freelancers are mainly concentrated in large cities, and increasingly in Ile-de-France. They travel frequently to chat with their customers and maintain their network.
For freelancers, the phenomenon of clusters (otherwise known as “competitiveness clusters”) has never been more important. The importance of network effects and the density of the ecosystem encourage more freelancers to be where it is, to network, to meet their clients, to work with them, and to interact with their peers. Freelancers maintain a geographic proximity link with their clients. They cannot free themselves from any territorial anchorage.
