French Tech Viet 3.0 @LaResidence

Last 31st May 2018, La French Tech Viet, was gathering its top influent, active and engaged startups, entrepreneurs and tech experts based in Vietnam to celebrate “La French Tech Viet 3.0 — Cocktail Party” at La Residence of the Consulate General of France.

We had the pleasure of receiving H.E Mr. Bertrand LORTHOLARY, Ambassador of France to Vietnam, who reiterated his full support for the project on this occasion.

Thanks to our French Consulate General, Vincent Floreani, who offered to us the privilege to organise this event at the ‘Residence of France’.

A co-organised event with La French Tech Viet, affirming the ambition to make the community grow and to open it to influential local and international tech players.

French Tech Viet 3.0 — From a Vision to a Mission

Our vision has been “co-built” among our executive committee, and from the overall feedback collected among our community.

In order to make it live, this vision has been turned into a mission with athe nomination of a dedicated French Tech Viet Coordinator, Anaïs Victor.

Few members from the executive committee : Anaïs Victor (French Tech Vietnam), Sebastien Auligny (Gameloft) & Vincent Capa (Dirox), were invited on stage to share “La French Tech Viet” ambitions and roadmap.

Entrepreneuriat & Tech Events

We aim to organise quarterly high-qualified events who will be based on “Entrepreneurship” in its generalist topic.

We do believe that it will encourage & engage our startups and tech entrepreneurs to share their know-how, their experiences, but also to meet, connect, and to learn from each others.

French Tech Viet Q2 & Q3 2018 Events : Meet, Share & Connect

Ecosystem & Tech Expertise

We aim to develop Expertise Hubs & Networks (6) to identify our Tech Ambassadors & Key Actors about specialised tech areas such as :

  1. Startups & Entrepreneurship
  2. Web & Mobile Development
  3. AI & Machine Learning
  4. BlockChain & Crypto Currencies
  5. Big Data, Analytics, & Growth Hacking
  6. Health Care & Med Tech

And we hope that few more will emerge soon…

We do believe that organising “Expertise Hubs Meet-ups” with a smaller venue, invitation-only, with a targeted audience will support to focus, learn & grow faster on specific startups & tech topics.

Tech Communities Bridges

We aim to maximise our interactions with all existing Tech Communities in Vietnam by establishing different types of partnership : by co-hosting tech events, by building privileged relationships with coworking spaces and by making strong bridges with local and international tech communities.

We do believe that we now stand at a very propitious moment in Vietnam’s history, with Vietnam strengthening its position on the global technology scene, and the recent boom in the startup ecosystem, will contribute to maximise the interactions and the collaboration among all communities.

Startup and Tech Projects Mentoring

We also aim to confirm our intention to build a strong relationship with the EID Accelerator powered by the French Chamber of Commerce, in order to reinforce the coaching and mentoring of our local tech startups.

An opportunity to meet a jury of 15 experts & mentors, with a strong experience in Vietnam, to drive them on the “rollercoaster” path, that any entrepreneurial project is.

Tech Star Speakers

For this special occasion, we welcomed three speakers on stage, among our guests, from different backgrounds & industries, to share about their singular experiences as entrepreneurs in Vietnam.
