Startup VIllage and Google Workshop under construction at the eve of the event

Startup Village and Google Workshop under construction at the eve of the event

#LeWeb, the annual conference gathering thought leaders and innovators – which started 10 years ago – is taking place this week in Paris. For 3 days, globally-minded startups, innovators and leaders from the tech industry will discuss the future of the internet. We couldn’t resist the opportunity to be the witness and report on what’s hot and ahead in tech.

Here is a quick heads-up on who, when, why, how, where and what to expect from #LeWeb reported by Girls in Tech London 😉

  • What’s hot, cold or UFO in Tech?

This year, LeWeb is questioning what’s ahead in the next 10 years in the internet space. What can we expect if we look back at the last fast-paced 20 years?

Looking at the programme so far it seems that Geraldine & Loic have planned to answer this with a schedule that brings recognised, strong industry leaders of the last decades (Paypal, Microsoft, Apple, etc) and some of the most innovative businesses of the recent years (Uber, Evernote, Twitter, and the likes).

  • 3 days, 3 perspectives, and many, many topics covered

Looking at the sessions planned, the agenda seems to articulate this theme in 3 steps:

Monday – The first day, successful internet industry leaders of the past ten years will describe their vision of the future, perhaps telling the story of their company, what made them successful, and what’s their strategy to sustain that success in the next ten years.

Tuesday – This day could be titled: the state of innovation and entrepreneurship. Looks like a lot of sessions are trying to define what it means to be an internet entrepreneur, what are the current problems (#mobile, #meditation!, #Emerging Countries,…)  and how to make yourself innovative moving forward.

Wednesday – Internet advocates from the French Government are joining the leaders of cutting-edge technologies (artificial intelligence, connected TVs, 3D printing) to close #LeWeb, and (eventually) address its core theme. The big boys that have invested and are investing big money in the future will talk about their projection and the bets they have made for the next 10 years.

  •  What to expect 

Our partnership team will be on the ground with Marie Hardel and Josephine Goube, acting as agent representative of Girls in Tech London, along Roxanne Varza, our leading coordinator for Girls in Tech UK and France.

With their critical eye, sometimes on the (bad) edge of bitchiness, we will be reporting for GIT on what we think are the most thoughtful and meaningful ideas of #LeWeb. A first glance at the panel of speakers, it already seems like the gender ratio status quo is yet to be disturbed. But enough of feminism and moaning, let’s get this changed!

Girls, I count on you to be loud, to tweet and make women more visible online and offline at #LeWeb. 😉
