2020 will have been a difficult year for events, especially for “No profit” Americans who had to convert their prestigious annual galas into Zoom evenings. Despite adversity, others have yet decided to embark on the virtual conference experience for the first time. This is the case of French Tech America, a group of 10 French Tech communities in North America, which has decided to launch its first Online Summit on December 3.

The event, which will be hosted on the Wisembly platform, consists of 20 panels spread over 6 sessions: a “main room” and 5 rooms on talents (and in particular the issue of diversity), financing, business development, verticals (such as cyber-security or gaming) and finally the presentation of lesser-known French Tech America antennas, such as Raleigh in North Carolina or Canada. ” This format is the opportunity for us to address French entrepreneurs and the North American Tech community and show them the power of the French Tech network to settle in North America or invest in French startups. But also to listen to feedback from successful entrepreneurs who live here », Explains Caroline Faucher-Winter, which manages the French Tech America community.

Because behind the success stories of Datadog, Snowflake or Mirakl, hide French entrepreneurs, who have managed to attract the interest of very courted American investors. The second objective of this conference is therefore to show the potential of French tech start-ups to the American financial community. Among the renowned guests, Martin Casado from the iconic Andreessen Horowitz venture fund, and Yves Sisteron from Upfront. VCs who sometimes have received ideas about start-ups and France. ” We are betting on the ‘no-BS’ side, the moderators will ask direct questions and the idea is to have discussions without tongue in cheek on the image that American investors have of French Tech. “.

This event, of which French Morning is a partner, is a first for the 10 French Tech America (Austin, Boston, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Montreal, New York, Raleigh in North Carolina, San Francisco and Toronto). It is above all proof of the commitment and dynamism of the volunteers who make them up, to make French start-ups or start-ups founded by French people on the other side of the Atlantic shine.
