With more than 80 participants to this 1st edition of this event, 40 start ups had the opportunity to meet with 16 investors to boost their companies and push forward their innovative ideas. The startups had face to face meetings with investors during 2 match making sessions to pitch their ideas, solutions, services or products.
ECSO Vice President and Head of Digital Security of the Digital Transformation Office for Airbus Defence & Space, François Lavaste kick started the event with introductory remarks.
