EmTech Returns to Toulouse in October

The second EmTech France will feature Venture Point, a unique opportunity for startups

EmTech, the emerging technologies conference organized by MIT Technology Review and Opinno, will return to Toulouse from October 6-7, 2016. The event will provide insights about today’s most important technological trends, including machine learning, smart materials, energy transition, and the impact of blockchain in the future of finance.

EmTech France  will feature high-level speakers, including Skylar Tibbits, director of MIT’s Self-Assembly Lab and research scientist in MIT’s Department of Architecture; Assaf Biderman, CEO at Superpedestrian and associate director at MIT’s Senseable City Lab; Elena Corchero, founder and CEO of Lost Values; and Clémentine Chambon, CTO and founder of Oorja and a 2016 Social Innovator Under 35 France, among others.

The city of Toulouse, through So Toulouse, supports conference organizers and attendees  by offering them the best of Toulouse.

“In the first event, we talked about how technology will transform the future,” says Pedro Moneo,  the international partner of MIT Technology Review and CEO at Opinno. “Now we want to know how our existing technologies will help us to build a better society, a better world.” Moneo expects to repeat last year’s success with an event featuring more than 40 international experts and 500 entrepreneurs.

Venture Point, A Unique Opportunity for Startups

A core part of EmTech France 2016 will be Venture Point, which, in collaboration with La French Tech, finds, selects, and showcases some of the most promising French tech startups. Candidate companies are evaluated on factors such as operating in markets of more than $1 billion, taking a social approach, and looking to complete a round of investment within the next 6-12 months.

As at EmTech France 2015, the chosen companies will participate in the Venture Point space, a meeting point for high-profile entrepreneurs, researchers, investors, venture capitalists, business executives, and journalists. Participants will be able to present their projects and to interact and network with each other. Visit the official EmTech France website to learn more.
