Bastien Faugeroux - 05-oct.-2018 10:33:51
  Business France – de handelsafdeling van de Franse Ambassade – heeft 26 september jongstleden de tweede editie van de French Tech Days in Nederland georganiseerd. Het evenement had als doel het ontdekken van de Nederlandse markt en het ontmoeten van toekomstige contacten door een delegatie van 12 Franse mid-stage startups : Adictiz Expedicar Golden Bees HNL - Heart Never Lies Hubstairs IDnomic Ooshot Malt Paytweak Saagie StreamMind Toucan Toco Het evenement vond plaats in het House of Watt, een nogal ongebruikelijke locatie omdat het een oud hotel betreft dat is getransformeerd tot een ontspannen coworking-ruimte. Philippe Lalliot, de Ambassadeur van Frankrijk in Nederland, opende de bijeenkomst met een presentatie van de Nederlandse Tech markt en haar vele mogelijkheden. De aanwezige ondernemers kregen de mogelijkheid om zich voor te stellen aan belangrijke actieve spelers op de Nederslandse markt gedurende een breed dagprogramma waarvan de uitstekende presentatie in handen was van Myléna Pierremont, de French Tech Amsterdam Ambassadeur. De ochtendsessie stond in het teken van grote internationals die hun ervaringen onderling deelden (CEO van Renault Benelux, Managing Director van PageGroup, Operationeel Directeur van Uber, Managing Director van Treatwell…) en “elevator pitches”. De netwerk lunch werd gevolgd door een matchmaking middag met meer dan 80 BtoB door Business France georganiseerde afspraken. De dag werd afgesloten met een Aperi’Tech in het hoofdkantoor van Philips in Amsterdam in samenwerking met de Franse Kamer van Koophandel in Nederland. De 12 aanwezige Franse startups hebben dankzij dit evenement contacten kunnen leggen met toonaangevende spelers als Nike, WeTransfer, KPN, Decathlon, Sanofi, Total, TomTom en Accor.
