VivaTech Paris 2024, 7th time!

|
  • Blog

Paris is calling you – we’re organizing the Israeli 7th delegation to VivaTech Paris for startups and investors – and again, it’s pro bono! Save the date: May 21 to May 23, 2024.
If global organizations are key for your business, come and engage with FR global leaders with pavilions, such as BNP Paribas, Bouygues, Capgemini, Crédit Agricole, EDF, Engie, JCDecaux, La Poste, LVMH, L’Oréal, Orange, Renault (Software Republic), Sanofi, SNCF, TotalEnergies and major Regions, such as Auvergne Rhone-Alpes (led by Lyon), Occitanie (led by Montpellier and Toulouse), Régions Sud (led by Marseille and Nice) and more from France / Europe and Japan (guest country). Sometimes, we facilitate meetings with major brands that join as participants without a pavilion, such as Carrefour, Michelin, Saint-Gobain, Sodexo, Stellantis and more.
And of course, we’ll organize our yearly France-Israel side event at VivaTech, on May 21 in the late afternoon. Stay tuned!

Wanna join? APPLY NOW!

Still not convinced? Look at the VivaTech expo, at the main corporations and partners, and feel the vibes of the Israeli delegation from last year’s pictures. Think for a minute why 100+ Israeli startups have joined us (and sometimes more than once) and also why Israeli soonicorns and unicorns have joined VivaTech too, such as Electreon, Monday.com, SimilarWeb, Taboola… And Israeli investors too, such as Consensus, Cukierman, Mobilion, OurCrowd and more…

NEXT:
– apply to join the Israeli delegation – free if selected >> Apply here, before April 10, 2024 at midnight
– join our VivaTech 2024 webinar, on Wed. April 10 at 18:00 IL time (RSVP)
– you can check and book your Paris accommodation with this secret Klerk URL (they are an Israeli traveltech startup that gives us special conditions)
– last but not least, join the “Israelis @ VivaTech” whatsapp group by clicking here (silent group during the year + active during the delegation period)

PAST:
– join our VivaTech 2024 launch meetup on March 20 at Google For Startups (it was a blast, look at the pictures)

NEW: sponsorship opportunities to support the IL ecosystem… #NoMatterWhat:
– May 21 at 18:00: “France-Israel VivaTech Side Event“; featuring the Israeli startups and investors delegation gathering with the FR/EU ecosystem, that cares about Israel for business and investments (6th time event!)
– May 21 at 20:00: “FR/EU Deep Dive into Israeli Investments” private dinner, gathering ±30 hand-picked family offices, VCs, and CVCs – on a gourmet restaurant’s private floor.
– May 22 at 19:00: “Boosting Israeli Biz in France; NoMatterWhat“, featuring the Israeli delegation and the Embassy of Israel team in an intimate B2B meeting.
– May 23 at 19:00: “Pitch Competition for FR/EU investors and 10+ confirmed media” – European competition while Israelis will get 3 pitches and more. Broader than Israeli only, great for media visibility.
