RockTech Paris #CreativeAI

Every two months, we put the spotlight on a specific industry with the potential to change the way we live, communicate and learn.

RockTech Paris isn’t your typical pitching event. We turn entrepreneurs into rockstars! Get your Triple A ticket and connect with your peers before and after the event, nominate your favorite startup and forge new partnerships in an intimate gathering. Our events sells out at 100 attendees. Well, rockstars.

Our June session is dedicated to Creative AI startups. The issue of whether A.I. can be creative is actually among the field’s most important questions. We will showcase the best innovations where A.I. meets creativity in a series of 3 minute pitches and award the next rockstar at the end of the show.
