The Café des Entrepreneurs is an event organized every two months in Boston where several guests, an entrepreneur and one or several elevator pitches, are interviewed by a moderator and answer the questions of the audience. It also an opportunity to network and exchange for francophile and francophone entrepreneurs, investors and professionals based in New-England.
Created in 2013 by a team of French business partners based in Boston (Consulate, FACCNE, CCEF, French Tech Hub), the Café des Entrepreneurs aims at sharing one’s experience, stimulating new career prospects and promoting closer ties between the business actors of the New-England ecosystem.
