What is VivaTech?

Viva Technology (VivaTech) is one of the largest conferences dedicated to technology innovation and startups, comparable in scope to CES Las Vegas and other global industry's most important events. Held since 2016 in Paris, last year's VivaTech attracted a record number of attendees and a host of significant speakers, including Space X and Tesla CEO Elon Musk and French President Emmanuel Macron. The conference covers the widest range of applications of modern digital technologies, from entertainment and sports to AI, Deep Tech, healthcare, and transport.

VivaTech is a conference about the technology industry in Europe, and at the same time it is a hub that connects the old continent with the whole world. The guest country of this year's conference will be Japan, which will bring to the conference its newest startups in AI and Deep Tech.

In anticipation of its 2024 edition, the conference published the "Top 100 Next Unicorns" list - an annual collection of the 100 most promising large-scale technology projects in Europe. The majority of the list was made up of SaaS companies offering software-as-a-service solutions through targeted subscriptions, and Artificial Intelligence startups were also among the top three most represented areas on the list. Among countries, the UK topped the list with 22 companies, followed by France (21 companies) and Germany (14 companies).
