Spotlight on

President Macron @VivaTech

The President of the French Republic has honored our event once again this year with a visit on opening morning. After viewing the exhibition area, President Macron headed to Stage One to share his thoughts on how to make technology a positive force for both economy and society.

VivaTech 2019 : bigger and better than ever!

This year, more than 124,000 visitors from 125 countries attended this 4th edition, with 13,000 startups, 3,300 investors and 2,500 journalists.
With even more innovations, prestigious international partners and inspiring speakers for its fourth edition, Viva Technology has exceeded all expectations and confirmed its standing as an unmissable stop on the international tech calendar.

The Next European Unicorn Awards

For its 4th edition, VivaTech was on the hunt for the best European Scaleups who aim to be the Next European Unicorns! The first edition of the Next European Unicorn Awards, in partnership with VC partner Accel as well as media partners Les Echos and the Wall Street Journal, allowed us to showcase Europe’s solid potential for scaleups, with 30 European scaleups having been selected as finalists at VivaTech. We had 6 category winners as well as a Grand Prize. The 2019 Grand Prize was won by French scaleup OpenClassrooms for traction potential, impact and leadership.

The Next Startupper Challenge by VivaTech

The first edition of VivaTech’s inter-university competition was a real success! With the aim of promoting business projects amongst students, our French partner universities selected and submitted their students' best projects. 12 promising projects were pitched to top managers from BNP Paribas, EY, Google, Les Echos START, LVMH, Publicis and Valeo. Néolithe, a startup producing eco-friendly concrete from Polytechnique, was awarded the first prize by Frédérique Vidal, the Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation.
