France Digitale celebrates 5th anniversary with Lombard Odier at top tech day

Innovation is the cornerstone of our philosophy. It’s what has enabled us to traverse 40 crises and continually rethink over the course of our 220-year history. We partner with initiatives like France Digitale who believe in the power of technology and want to transform France into a place that fosters and nurtures start-ups.

Behind the creative backdrop of the Musée des Arts Forains, in Paris, on 26 September entrepreneurs, rethinkers and lobbyists came together to discuss the latest trends and plot future innovations at this top tech event. The occasion was sponsored by France Digitale, in celebration of their 5th birthday, and over 2,500 participants were involved at this sold out event.

The event was action-packed with 83 speakers, speeches, booths and interactive sessions all day. Lombard Odier held some mini-conferences with the help of our Head of Wealth Planning Lombard Odier (Europe) France, Valerie Montel. In keeping with the start-up theme, Valerie’s session was setup like a 7-mins pitch where she focused on the importance of ensuring small firms consider the legal set up of partnerships. She emphasised that hiring a lawyer to lay right foundations for the future was crucial to ensuring a business is successful.

Although Lombard Odier is an established maison, we have a Rethink Everything philosophy so we are armed with the mentality of a start-up, which has made us innovators for more than two centuries.

Unquestionably, France are committed to developing a leading digital presence and this was confirmed by the French “Premier Minister” (Prime Minister) Edouard Philippe, who announced France Digitale’s 5th anniversary at the “Matignon,” (the minister’s office) on the evening of Monday 25 September. The event’s rousing closing speech by Mounir Mahjoubi, Secretary of State in charge of Digital Affairs, complimented the tech day and also stressed the importance of further developing France in the digital space and reiterated the fact that the government is completely behind the project.
