Human interactions, thoughts exchange and of course discussion can give rise to a whole new idea or true innovation. Having said that, ideas come to life with the help of proper guidance, exposure, investments and funding. In addition to it, the individuals or team behind the ideas should be recognised and provide leadership to ensure the continuing economic success. And that’s what Viva Technology 2019 is all about.
What is Viva Tech?
Co-organized by Publicis Groupe and Groupe Les Echos, VivaTech is the world’s rendezvous for startups and leaders to celebrate innovation.
