Open Coffee et BarCamp à Sophia Antipolis

La deuxième édition du BarCampSophiaAntipolis se tiendra le jeudi 5 novembre à l’Agora Einstein - Sophia Antipolis, de 16h30 à minuit. Les participants ont opté pour le thème du Ecommerce. L’OpenCoffee Club Sophia sera partenaire de cet événement majeur des nouvelles technologies de la Côte d’Azur, a tel point qu’il aura lieu au sein même du Barcamp spécialement à cette occasion.

Le thème du Ecommerce, présenté aujourd’hui comme le nouvel eldorado des commerçants, sera débattu sous plusieurs angles de réflexions, aussi bien techniques que commerciaux. Il y a d’ailleurs déjà plusieurs sujets très pragmatiques proposés par les futurs participants :

  • Le Ecommerce est-il toujours un eldorado ou une affaire de professionnels ?
  • Quelle solution pour se lancer dans la vente en ligne ?
  • Les différentes méthodes de communication et leurs retombées en terme d’audience.
  • La place du mobile dans le Ecommerce de demain.
  • Les outils communautaires : Facebook, Twitter, …
  • Les moyens de paiement et la difficulté de convaincre les banques.

L’entrée est gratuite, mais l’inscription est obligatoire afin de faciliter l’organisation de cet événement. Pour ce faire, il suffit simplement de se rendre sur le wiki et d’éditer la page pour rajouter son nom. Il est également possible de contacter Sandra Bayer par email (à sbayer@cari.fr) si vous rencontrez des difficultés pour vous enregistrer.

Barcamp Leeds - Startup Essentials Supported

So barcamp Leeds was last week and part of the LS1 week, that has seen another northern city bring together a series of events aimed at supporting the startup and entrepreneur community locally. At the heart of this is Imran Ali, a person who I have a lot of respect for in spending time to pull a group of like minded people together and drive these events to happen, it takes a lot of energy and effort to bring together a 100 people, feed them and in certain respects guide them.

Barcamp leeds, Im proud to say that I, thus Startup Essentials supported and sponsored to help with that effort and will continue to do so, to enable communities to share their knowledge and passion is core to Sun as a company, but also to Startup Essentials as a means to help startups. So what happened over this weekend then ?

\* Two days

\* 90 People

\* 39 Sessions on all manner of subjets.

And some great ideas, future thought discussions and new business relationships forged, thus counting it a huge success in my eyes and shows also the people behind this event, worked hard to make it happen to keep the audience there and discussing till late in the night :-) (or was it the Startup Essentials supported element haha)

If you don't know what a barcamp is, find one near you and go, it is so rewarding in the fact that the audience create the content, you decide what you want to hear and talk about, thus it is so diverse but also stimulating sharing those ideas.

Anyway if you want to know more, check out Imrans blog it has all the details on the event and when its happening next, if you want details on these types of events, then don't forget join Startup Essentials now.
