Build the bridge. Bring talents.
Founder & President, La French Touch Conference
La French Touch Conference is an itinerant business event with a focus on entrepreneurship, innovation and creativity. Its mission is to build the bridge between France, Europe and other startup ecosystems all over the world.
La French Touch Conference was founded in 2014 by Gaël Duval, a serial French digital entrepreneur. Since then, there has already been four editions: three in New York City, gathering each year about 600 attendees, and one in San Francisco in the format of an unconference.
The event gathers entrepreneurs, investors, business leaders, and many other people who are innovative, creative, open to the world and ready to connect with each other.
La French Touch Conference also launched Pitch in the Plane, a unique startup competition that allows entrepreneurs to pitch their startup to a jury of investors and business leaders on a Paris – New York flight, 35,000 feet above the Atlantic.
In 2017, and after its first San Francisco edition, La French Touch Conference will be heading back to New York City on June 27&28. The 2nd edition of Pitch in the Plane will open the event on June 26.
