Village de tentes

Il faut un village…

Au Startupfest, le Village de tentes est l’un des aspects les plus uniques et attirants de tout l’événement. Notre objectif est de créer un environnement qui encourage les participants à se séparer de leurs écrans pour créer de véritables liens. Nous avons plus de 30 espaces, allant de sections thématiques, espaces de démonstration, compétitions de « pitch » et de sections par régions géographiques. Il n’y a pas de substitut à une interaction en personne et notre Village facilite ces échanges en vous plaçant dans le même espace physique que toutes les personnes que vous souhaiteriez rencontrer. Contrairement aux autres rassemblements, lors desquels vous verrez des conférenciers faire leur présentation avant de quitter rapidement pour ne pas manquer leur vol, vous pourrez attraper les nôtres qui passent un bon moment dans le Village de tentes, bière à la main et heureux de se rendre disponible pour discuter et créer des liens avec vous.

Le Village offre aux participants une opportunité exceptionnelle de réseauter que vous ne pourrez trouver ailleurs.
