Take advantage of this warm and friendly gathering to expand your network while over a drink and a delicious Christmas buffet. Startups Stand Up! During this festive evening, the 2016 and 2017 "graduating classes" from the Annecy Base Camp business incubator will present their projects in elevator pitch format. Each entrepreneur will have 3 minutes to convince a panel, made up of media experts and investors, of the relevance of their product, concept, or service. At the end of the evening, everyone present will have the opportunity to select (if they so choose) the entrepreneurs they would like to help (by sharing contacts, an expertise, advice, or even by investing...). Thanks to our partner Peopeo, you will be able to hear each pitch loud and clear (in French). To attend, fill out an online RSVP by clicking here.

This region covers the entire Alps and ecompasses thousands of employees who work in the sports and recreation industries, the headquarters of most outdoor industry companies, and represents one of the planet’s most unique playgrounds.

The Outdoor Sports Valley concept, developed in Annecy in 2009, became an official association in 2010, and a certified industry cluster (Grappe d'Entreprises) in 2011 by the French state (DATAR). Annecy, exceptional geographic and strategic location, is the official capital of the Outdoor Sports Valley.
