What To Expect At A Boardwave Dinner?
The secret sauce to a really great networking dinner, is the calibre people who are there to meet you, the quality of the discussion, which is interesting and thought provoking. And finally the dining experience, whether its at a cool venue, or michelin star restaurant. If you bring all these things together everyone has a great time, learns a little and meets new friends and colleagues.
Unleashing Europe's software potential
At our first VIP dinner in France, we revisit the topic of our podcast, discussing the current state of the French & European Software market, and how we can be more competitive.
Join our exclusive Boardwave dinner debate in Paris, where we'll dive into the European software market's future with our esteemed hosts including Leo Apotheker, Pascal Houillon, Jose Duarte, Guy Dubois, and Franck Cohen, leading visionaries in the industry. As well as next-generation emerging leaders like Alexandre de Vigan, Founder of nfinite
Together, let's explore strengths and weaknesses, identify key barriers, and discuss strategies for building world-beating software firms to rival Silicon Valley. Don't miss this opportunity to network with fellow French CEOs and shape the future of our software industry.
The debate about how we could build more world beating software firms, akin to the historical successes of Silicon Valley has been discussed for many years. Historically, access to capital was an issue in Europe, but that is no longer a barrier, so whats holding us back? What are our strengths and weaknesses on global basis, and what should we do about it?
See our recent blog article from Boardwave Patron, Leo Apotheker on why European software leaders need patience and persistance to win. In this blog, Leo draws from his personal success story - namely how he took one of the few European-headquartered software businesses global.
We are grateful to Bank of America for their Sponsorship of Boardwave and this event in particular.
