” Now let’s learn and generate a positive & sustainable impact on mankinD

“For the 2020 Edition of INPHO Venture Summit, we will tackle some of the biggest challenges ahead for our world.  On one hand we are seeing the positive impact of AI on how we work and live.  On the other hand there is tremendous anxiety on social impact of these technologies and our seemingly lack of progress on climate change.  We will explore this paradigm and meet entrepreneurs who are working on positively impacting the world via breakthrough technologies such as machine learning, quantum computing, nanotechnology, automation and space technology.

Through the years, this Bordeaux region public initiative has generated private investments and partnerships with global impact. We are counting on you as participants to once again make this happen in this beautiful setting, taking advantage of the unique gathering of entrepreneurs, corporate leaders and venture investors.

We are delighted to host you in Bordeaux.

Now let’s learn and generate a positive and sustainable impact on mankind.”

VocalZoom is a disruptive industry 4.0 startup from Israel. We came to INPHO Venture summit in Bordeaux France as part of our fund raising process. The venue took place in a great location, the one on one meetings were well organized and easy to manage, and the networking environment around, including the food were really good and gave incentive for investors to participate. We got at least 3 good leads from the event which is good for a 2 day event. Tal Bakish
