McDermott VivaTech Workshop 2023


Join our McDermott team together with a panel of industry experts as they guide you through the challenges and opportunities that start-ups face today. This event will take place during the VivaTech Conference, Europe’s Biggest Startup and Tech Event.

Our workshop will explore the economic and legal drivers in tech which are helping to create tomorrow’s European unicorns. We will have two key discussions:

1 – From Start-Ups to Unicorns

  • How can a business leverage its offering to grow better, faster, stronger?
  • The challenges that start-ups are faced with and how to best navigate them
  • Steps to take when moving from growth to a risk management approach

2- French Tech Staying French

Romain Perray, European Head of Privacy & Cybersecurity, McDermott Will & Emery

Maxime Agostini, CEO of Sarus Technology
Franck Gayraud, CEO of Arcure Blaxtair

  • What is the certain je ne sais quoi that differentiates French Tech?
  • Is sovereignty à la française the only pathway for a strong French Tech?
  • What can be done to support the growth of French Tech?
