The international start-up scene gathered for four days at Viva Technology in Paris. Our six start-ups – Phytonics, Turn2X, Valoon, AvoLingo, RevoAI and Revyve – were on stand D11 in Hall 1. The strong networking of our teams, not only on the FGTL stand but also at the various side events, deserves special mention. These events provided an excellent opportunity to break new ground and initiate sustainable partnerships. The interface with political players such as Daniela Schmitt, Franziska Gifey and Mario Brandenburg, who provided us with valuable insights and support, was also a great added value.Viva Technology is a platform that brings together innovators, investors and networking experts from different cultural backgrounds in Paris. We had the opportunity to meet many inspiring people, startups and innovators, discover new opportunities and find the right partners for future projects.Special thanks to AHK France / Franco-German Chamber of Industry and Commerce for organising the Franco-German Tech Lab and the side events such as the German Startup Night.

Our start-ups had the opportunity to present their innovative solutions on stage at the Franco-German Techlab. REVYVE Technologies, Turn2X Phytonics and Valoon, RevoAI GmbH and AvoLingo impressed the audience with their pitches and made many new contacts. They also took the opportunity to present themselves and their innovations to a wide audience. Our startup Litona was able to convince in an exciting panel discussion.We are particularly proud of TURN2X, which won the pitch competition on Industry 4.0. Welcoming guests such as Daniela Schmitt, Mario Brandenburg and the German Ambassador to France at our stand was another highlight.Viva Technology has once again shown that it is the right place for innovative start-ups that are ready to scale and take their ideas to the world. We look forward to the next edition in 2025 and to continuing our journey.Au revoir et à l’an prochain Viva Technology!
