The Val-de-Marne Development Agency launches Les Matinales, a series of web-conferences dedicated to innovation
Les Matinales is an initiative of the Val de Marne Development Agency to enable entrepreneurs to share their experiences and expertise. Usually these three days of conferences focus on innovation in France with very "local" entrepreneurs.
This year, the event will take a more international turn by presenting the experiences of French entrepreneurs abroad as well as a pitching session inspired by the British TV show Dragon's Den.
The entire event will be broadcast live on the web (streaming) to reach a maximum international audience interested in innovation in France.
