RockTech Paris #Gaming #Esport

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 150 attendees. Well, rockstars.

Our February session is dedicated to gaming & esport startups. This is all about startups that are transforming the way games are created, data is collected, and content is shared. We will showcase the best innovations in a series of 3 minute pitches and award the next rockstar at the end of the show.
