This Conference really inspired me last year, and the existence of Altaide Valley started there...
So now we have 3 very exciting events to announce:
French Tech Tour in Silicon Valley with French Trade Office in San Francisco: 10 French Startups to be selected for a one week program in June 2009. CEO's of the chosen companies will be flown to the US for exclusive meetings with the Valley's potential partners, startups, and VC's. The Tour will also include a Public Conference dedicated to Valley's Tech Startups CEOs and culminate in an evening soiree. This Tour is organized by French Trade Office in San Francisco, in collaboration with Altaide Valley. If you're interested, let's meet then at LeWeb, at Altaide's booth, or meet Gatien Gachet from French Trade Office who will be there specially back from San Francisco. Check the 2008 Tour Blog here.
ParisBeta:it's a brand new startup mixer inspired from SF Beta managed by Christian Perry in San Francisco.
We want more space in Paris for startup to talk but most of all show their products, websites, applications, whatever! Have a feedback straight from curious and enthusiastic audience. The #1 will take place in January, we look for 5 startups ready to launch at this time.
Nice location and great sponsor to be announced, we wait for you now!
GeekTrip#3: almost 30 people interested to come with 2nd chapter we organized last month, already 4 guys on Board ready to go...
Q1 will be an interested period to discover Silicon Valley, we have some thoughts regarding a new cycle to come.
If you wanna join, tell us, we will have same format and just 10 guys to drive in California!
We plan to organize it mid February, just after Mobile World Congress in Barcelona... No risk if any are interested to go in Silicon Valley for a mobile focus, and can't make it just one week after... stay tuned!
