The President of the French Republic has honored our event again in 2018. Emmanuel Macron has delivered a speech about his views on how to make technology a positive force for our economy and our society. The day before his speech at VivaTech, the Tech for Good Summit gathered global tech leaders at Palais de l’Elysée to discuss the positive impact of tech & innovations.
That’s the catchy – and totally relevant – theme for a VivaTech Tour event dedicated to women looking to secure financing for their startup, happening 3rd April at The Family in Paris.
