Embassy event helps young UK and French technology companies share ideas and resources.

The British Embassy Paris hosted an innovation conference for technology start-ups yesterday (3 April, 2013). The event brought together small firms from the UK and France and looked at new ways they could work together to take ideas to market.

The event, which was jointly organised by the British Embassy Paris and France Start-Ups Inc, was attended by over 100 people and included workshops on using online collaboration tools and competing in global markets. There was also a presentation by Angel Investors UK on how to raise funding.

At the end of the conference, attendees agreed to make this an annual event and nominated a small group to start organising next year’s conference. The project forms a part of the embassy’s ongoing priority to develop stronger ties between British and French businesses and stimulate growth.

Director of UK Trade & Investment ( UKTI) France Nigel Green said:

The UK and France both have vibrant start-up cultures and a wealth of talent in the technology sectors. Our job at UKTIis to find ways to bring together people in those sectors so that they share innovation and generate growth. Events like this are a great way to do that.
