Bpifrance Inno Génération (“Big”), the largest gathering of entrepreneurs in Europe, returns this year on Thursday, October 7 to the AccorHotels Arena (Paris 12th arrondissement).
Unmissable event for business and innovation, “Big” will welcome for its 7th edition more than 1,000 speakers (business creators, large groups, startuppers, companies of all sizes …) for a day under the sign of the spirit of conquest.
On the program, more than 400 workshops, conferences and masterclasses to understand the challenges of tomorrow and new technological trends. In this context, many themes dear to entrepreneurs will be addressed: business creation, sustainable development, digital transformation, artificial intelligence, deeptech, industry 4.0, international, financing of growth, health, management …
Climate in the spotlight
Several personalities will also be present, such as François Villeroy de Galhau (Governor of the Banque de France), Guillaume Rozier (creator of CovidTracker), Xavier Niel (founder of Iliad) or even Agnès Pannier-Runacher (Minister delegate to the Minister of ‘Economy in charge of Industry). Not to mention the many entrepreneurs who will share their experience.
The climate theme will be at the heart of this event. One year after the announcement of the 40 billion euro climate plan shared with the Banque des Territoires, Bpifrance is thus creating a space dedicated to entrepreneurs committed to the ecological and energy transition (TEE).
In this context, members of the Bpifrance Coq Vert Community will be highlighted, whose goal is to create collective emulation between economic actors of all sizes around the environmental transition, but also testimonials from scouts who will present their ambitious and inspiring projects in favor of TEE. Likewise, an exhibition and a presentation of greentechs are also planned, such as workshops and masterclasses on the theme of TEE.
A new networking platform
Among the other novelties of this 7th edition of “Big”, the social network of Bpifrance will take over the Arena to install its expression scene “Campfire”. The goal: to discover the innovations of each tribe: French Fab, French Touch, Climat, and French Tech. For its part, the meeting place is making its comeback, in a 100% digital version. It will thus be possible to make an appointment with purchasing directors of large groups, business angel networks, export and financing advisers, etc.
