President Macron @VivaTech

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.

The best startup in Europe

TechCrunch hosted Startup Battlefield Europe for the first time ever in France at VivaTech. 15 cherry-picked startups presented in front of multiple groups of VCs and tech leaders serving as judges for a chance to win €25,000 and an all-expense paid trip to San Francisco to participate in Disrupt SF 2018. After a morning of fierce competition, they voted for Wingly, a flight-sharing platform that connects pilots and passengers, to be the winner.
