For the 7th consecutive year, Business France will showcase some of the hottest tech startups hailing from France on the French Tech Pavilion at SXSW, Austin, TX, from March 13th to 22nd, 2020.
Thanks to Business France, we attended SXSW 2018 – THE unmissable festival for new technology in the music field.
We established valuable contacts with future partners, major players in the industry such as streaming platforms, record companies and prestigious multinational corporations. Our presence earned us articles in major French and American media.
SXSW is undoubtedly a must to promote and develop a start-up in a friendly and festive atmosphere. We will definately take part in the next edtion!
Surprising event, with a huge business potential.
Attending SXSW with La French Tech in 2016 enabled us to raise our profile among key players in the high-tech industry and make contact with young firms that specialize in new technologies. It offers exposure at a global level, but especially on the US market!”
In just four days at SXSW, I managed to speak to all my partners: Evernote, Dropbox, Google and Box. In four days I managed to do what would usually have taken me several months
