La French Touch Conference is an itinerant business conference that aims to build a bridge between France and other dynamic entrepreneurial ecosystems, with a focus on tech, innovation and creativity. After two successful editions in NYC in 2014 and 2015, gathering each year 60+ speakers and 500+ attendees (entrepreneurs, VCs, CEOs, institutions and media), the third edition will take place on June 21 & 22, 2016.
For its third edition in New York City, La French Touch Conference will focus on a specific theme: David&Goliath, that means the interactions between startups and major corporations, from both sides of the Atlantic. The event will also include:
– A Pitch In The Plane: a startup contest during the flight from Paris to New York on June 20, that will inaugurate this third edition of La French Touch Conference;
– A startup contest on stage with six French startups ready to expand in the US and six American startups willing to reach the French market;
– Thematic workshops on Luxury, FinTech, Construction Tech, Artificial Intelligence, Media&Video and «how to expand in the US / France?»;
– Cultural events and networking moments.
