(WEBINAR) In search of European unicorns: How to strengthen Europe’s place in the innovation ecosystem?

AmCham France is pleased to invite you on Wednesday November 18  from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. to the launch webinar of its white paper  CHASING THE EUROPEAN UNICORNS – How to position the European innovation ecosystem to the forefront?

With the exceptional participation of Philippe Englebert,  Business, Attractiveness and Export Advisor to the President of the Republic.

In partnership with B Smart


Our working group started from a simple observation: Europe lags behind its Asian and American competitors on innovation issues. This white paper makes concrete and actionable recommendations for the companies, entrepreneurs and institutions that make up the innovation ecosystem in Europe.

These recommendations are focused on four areas: the  culture of innovation, the  market fragmentation,  the  channels of  financing , and the  partnership as a new standard for innovation.
