NETVA (New Technology Venture Accelerator) - Networking Reception

October 23, 2017

The Office for Science and Technology of the Embassy of France in the United States, in partnership with the French-American Chamber of Commerce, is organizing a networking reception at the Embassy of France for the laureates of the 2017 edition of the Netva program in Washington, DC. Please join us and meet five French innovative high-tech startups, our 2017 Netva laureates, on October 23, 2017 at 6:00 pm.


Netva is a mentoring program for innovative French startups wishing to discover the North-American high-tech market. It is run by the Office for Science and Technology of the Embassy of France in four locations: Boston, San Francisco, Washington, DC and Toronto. This year, 20 French startups have been selected through a national competition by juries in France and in the US.

The program started with a three-day training seminar in France, which took place in June 2017, and is followed by an immersion week in one of the four Netva centers in October 2017. Prior to this intense entrepreneurship week, each laureate is paired with one or more local mentors. During the week, laureates have the opportunity to network with high-level American academic and technological partners, and benefit from a series of training workshops focusing on how to approach and succeed in the North-American market.


Five laureates are coming to Washington, DC.

  • Diabeloop develops an artificial pancreas system to help patients suffering from type 1 diabetes.
  • Irisiome develops a new type of laser for medical and aesthetic applications such as tattoo removal.
  • develops a cryptography software to secure data storage and transfer.
  • Uwinloc develops battery-less, connected tags to track and locate large volumes of assets.
  • Vaonis develops an app-controlled telescope enabling users to take pictures of the night sky.

Please note that this event is by 'invitation only'. Please contact us if you would like to be invited.

When: Mon, Oct 23, from 6pm to 8pm
Where: French Embassy
