France's First E-Retail Startup Weekend!
Blanchemaille by Euratechnologies is happy to welcome you to France's very first eRetail Startup Weekend! Come and meet your next co-founder and other successful entrepreneurs alike.
The concept is easy - you have 54 hours to create a company. On Friday night you can pitch an idea and then people will vote on their favorite business ideas. After that you will form into teams and work all weekend to bring your company to life. We've gathered amazing coaches and speakers from the USA and France to inspire and help guide you along the way. On Sunday afternoon you will pitch your business concept to a panel of judges. The best company will have a chance to win something super exciting!
The theme is (e)retail. There are no rules, pitch your idea for something to sell - software, logistics, e-commerce, brick and mortar and everything in between that relates to (e)retail. It's your call.
We are targeting business people, developers, designers of all ages and backgrounds!
Come and meet your next cofounder, just like I did back in 2012!
