Title: From research to company. Two technology transfers stories.

Abstract: During this keynote we will have the opportunity to discover successful technology transfers. Two speakers, two stories, two points of view, two feedback for young researchers and so much more…

From an INRIA/University Research Team to an International Innovative Company. Denis presents in this talks the major steps that were needed to achieve a successful technology transfer from an academic team to a startup company, and then growing to a well established company with international presence. From the many difficulties, and often failure, ache, bitterness and headache, to the satisfaction, pleasure, and enjoyment that you sometimes get.

The story behind iExec, the first French major ICO success. What’s an ICO ? ICO stands for Initial Coin Offering. It’s a new way for startup to get funding by emitting new crypto-currencies or tokens on the blockchain. On April 19, iExec raised 10.000 Bitcoins in less than 3 hours, making it the 5th largest ICO in history. In this talk, you will learn about Bitcoins, the decentralization of the economy, and also about the scientific background of iExec, the first blockchain-based distributed Cloud platform.
