Startups: What makes a story in 2019? w/ Sifted, Les Echos & The Family

⚠️⚠️⚠️ TICKET VIA EVENTBRITE REQUIRED ⚠️⚠️⚠️ https://www.eventbrite.com/e/startups-what-makes-a-story-in-2019-w-sifted-les-echos-the-family-tickets-62120659565 The startup press ecosystem in Europe is shifting more than ever. Affected by the boom of EU fundraisings, the rising media attention towards startups generated a new wave: One where the quest for untold stories, diversity & new working habits prevails 📜 1. Fundraising is not so newsworthy anymore for the media :) 2. Founders are afraid of telling their whole story, but people are increasingly seeking authenticity. Are failures as interesting as successes? 3. Does the media have a “responsibility” in showcasing more diversity? 4. Is PR becoming more data-driven? Are the new PR tools relevant? These are a few of the topics we’ll cover during this exciting panel, where any entrepreneur or PR & Comms person will definitely be able to get deep insights with our group of high-class speakers: Amy Lewin (https://twitter.com/amyrlewin) is Senior Reporter at Sifted, the Financial Times-backed media platform for Europe's tech innovators and entrepreneurs. Guillaume Bregeras (https://twitter.com/gbregeras) is the chief-editor in charge of startup-related content at Les Echos, the leading French economic daily newspaper and one of the most active media in France regarding the startup scene 📰 Joanna Kirk (https://twitter.com/joakirk) wears many hats: Besides working as a Senior PR strategist for many top companies such as Atomico, she also co-founded Startup Sesame (European Tech events for startups) & is the managing director of StartHer, an initiative for more women in tech. Maud Camus (https://twitter.com/maudcamus) is our in-house PR & Comms leader at The Family. After spending years in communications agencies, she worked for a few years at Dropbox as a European PR Manager, and is now helping our founders to be better at telling their story 📚 You’ll have time to ask your own questions. This event is 100% open & free :) See you there! Love 💙 Vlad

How to make it in… The Transportation Industry 🚚 Fretlink & Trusk

⚠️⚠️⚠️ TICKET VIA EVENTBRITE REQUIRED ⚠️⚠️⚠️ https://www.eventbrite.com/e/how-to-make-it-in-the-transportation-industry-w-fretlink-trusk-tickets-62352641429 Moving stuff from one place to another didn’t have anything to do with computers for a very long time - until new actors arrived, reinvented the value chain and brought new value to fill in the gaps they saw in the market 🚛 This super-fragmented market is full of pretty big opportunities, so long as you aren’t distracted by the industry’s lack of sex appeal. Transporting goods is the core of our globalized economy and yet freight transport still isn’t mature and efficient enough. We invited two top CEOs who will discuss their own experiences and views of this industry, so that you get the keys to unlock your mind and find new ways to build a company in this particular industry 💕 Talk #1: From 0 to 30,000 deliveries per month by Thomas Effantin, CEO at Trusk Trusk (https://trusk.com) is the “last kilometer” delivery leader. With their large fleet of Truskers, they help big companies (including Ikea) and individuals to deliver large packages in cities. Thomas Effantin (https://www.linkedin.com/in/thomas-effantin-3ba6053a) will describe their journey for us: How they succeed in managing these Truskers and how they find cool ways to sell to big corps, bringing tons of value to the end customers by delivering whatever they need, whenever they need it. Talk #2: Building a tech & data company for the long haul by Paul Guillemin, CEO at Fretlink Why and how Fretlink gathered transport veterans, data-scientists, economists and software engineers to solve major issues in a €300 billion industry in Europe : road freight transportation. Paul Guillemin ((https://www.linkedin.com/in/paul-guillemin-194a1557) quickly understood that this industry wasn't efficient enough and launched Fretlink (https://www.fretlink.com/), a startup offering a streamlined organization of road freight, connecting shippers to the largest hub of local carriers in Europe. With 80 employees and 25M euros freshly-raised, they are becoming a true tech company, shaping the future of the industry and aiming to conquer new international markets. Data is a key component of their value proposal, and Paul will explain how they’ve been able to better structure it to address the problems they identify. You’ll have time to ask your own questions. This event is 100% open & free :) See you there!

Fireside chat with Martin Gurri, author of “The Revolt of The Public”

⚠️⚠️⚠️ TICKET VIA EVENTBRITE REQUIRED ⚠️⚠️⚠️ https://www.eventbrite.com/e/fireside-chat-with-martin-gurri-author-of-the-revolt-of-the-public-tickets-62131886144 We’re excited to have Martin Gurri (https://twitter.com/mgurri) in Paris on June 5th for a fireside chat with Nicolas Colin, cofounder & director at The Family, to talk about Martin’s book, “The Revolt of The Public” (https://www.amazon.fr/Revolt-Public-Crisis-Authority-Millennium/dp/B07K6Z8FXB). *** Martin is a veteran of US intelligence agencies, where he specialized in the use of open source information. He saw a lot, and it shows in “The Revolt of the Public”, which was first published in 2014—several years before the Brexit referendum, the election of Donald Trump or the appearance of France’s “Gilets jaunes”. In his book, Martin explains the sharp rupture we’re experiencing in the relationship between information and the public at large. In today’s world, ideas are diffused through networks instead of being imposed from on high. Those who were previously considered as top authorities (public officials, major media organizations, universities, think tanks) have been steadily pushed toward the margins, giving rise to the new force of the day: a multitude of individuals connected to one another through networks. And they form a public that is characterized more and more by one key trait: anger. It’s the prescient nature of Martin’s work, which at first passed relatively under the radar, that has pushed it to its current success and a new edition. In the wake of the “Gilets jaunes” crisis, and as the entire Western world seems engulfed by populism, come and grab a better understanding of what exactly is going on. The event will be followed by a Q&A and a casual chat over some drinks! See you there ! 💜 Zineb ⚠️⚠️⚠️ TICKET VIA EVENTBRITE REQUIRED ⚠️⚠️⚠️ https://www.eventbrite.com/e/fireside-chat-with-martin-gurri-author-of-the-revolt-of-the-public-tickets-62131886144
