Tech Conference Lyon
The Tech Conference was held on 8 July at Lyon’s Hôtel de Région and was organised jointly by EnterNext and the Rhône-Alpes region. It was a resounding success, with around 200 participants from the tech and finance communities, who discussed the growth financing and support of tech companies in the Rhône-Alpes region, Auvergne, and Burgundy.
The Lyon region already has a vibrant eco-system of innovative companies built around world scale competitiveness clusters Minalogic and Lyon Biopole, as well as many other top-tier clusters ranging from Clust’R Numérique and Axelera to Tenerrdis. Since EnterNext opened its Lyon office in 2013, 12 innovative local SMEs have listed on Euronext, including Amplitude Surgical, Crossject, Carbios, Oncodesign, McPhy Energy, Poxel, Tronics, and Visiativ, raising €250 million in all. Lyon also has a large pool of innovative SMEs; Lyon, Grenoble and, recently, Saint-Etienne have all been awarded the French Tech label and six companies in the region—Adocia, Erytech, Valneva, LDLC, Metabolic Explorer and SOITEC—are part of the Tech 40 label launched by EnterNext in April 2015. All are assisted by EnterNext teams at a grassroots level and can tap into its many initiatives to raise their profile and meet investors.
