Date created : Latest update :
France’s young, sneaker-wearing Digital Affairs Minister says he’s determined to continue government efforts to help homegrown tech start-up firms make inroads across the Atlantic. Mounir Mahjoubi, who worked on Emmanuel Macron’s presidential campaign, accompanied seven start-ups on a flight to the government-backed French Touch Conference (June 26-28th). During the eight-hour flight, the start-ups had to pitch their business plans to a jury of experts and investors. France 24 reporters Claire Williams and Karina Chabour were on-board.
