Thinking about transatlantic expansion? We got the scoop about this year's Transatlantic Leaders Forum from Léa Netter Borel, Retail Club Director at FrenchFounders and lead organizer of this event.
With a focus on "F(o)unding Tomorrow" the Transatlantic Leaders Forum (TLF) will be a hybrid event with special emphasis on smaller, in-person gatherings happening in both New York & Paris. How are you planning to offer a similar experience to your virtual attendees?
In order to broadcast the TLF and offer a valuable experience to our virtual guests, we have developed a digital networking platform that, in addition to the live broadcast of the conference, offers networking opportunities. Thanks to this tool our guests will be able to meet, interact and connect with any person present at the event. These conversations can last from 2 to 5 minutes.
How does the event foster the growth of innovation in the transatlantic ecosystem?
For the 3rd edition of TLF we have decided to turn the spotlight again on transatlantic startups with the Pitch @TLF Competition, this is one of the key points of how the event drives the growth of innovation in the transatlantic ecosystem. The Pitch @TLF allows entrepreneurs to pitch in front of an audience of thoughtful leaders, which will bring innovation to our guests and accelerate their visibility. Furthermore, we have invited unicorns and inspiring entrepreneurs to share their journey and vision.
The Pitch@TLF competition offers startups a wonderful stage. What other opportunities make this event unmissable for startup founders?
A wonderful stage for sure, but also so many other opportunities! For instance, among other benefits, the winners of the competition will profit from personal business connections following TLF, fiscal and accounting mentoring, 1 Business Solutions package (value $10,000). The other founders present will have the opportunity to meet an international audience of top-execs, C-Level corporates, VCs & many other entrepreneurs. The event is a perfect place to expand their network on an international scale!
How do you plan to facilitate networking opportunities for all the attendees at the event?
In order to facilitate networking opportunities for all our guests, these moments are very well planned. For instance, in New York, we have a networking session for breakfast, one for the morning break, for lunch, for the afternoon break & a cocktail in the evening. In Paris, we have planned an afternoon networking session and a private dinner for our members. For our online guests, the networking sessions will be done through our platform as mentioned above.
