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.

28th Jan Manchester (6 pm start) - Thriving as a Tech StartUp in an UpStart economy - Beating the economic blues

"Thriving as a Tech StartUp in an UpStart economy - Beating the economic blues", the first Northern StartUp 2.0 event of 2009 will be held on 28th Jan 08 at Howarth Clark Whitehill, Manchester, UK. Visit http://www.nwstartup20.co.uk/jan09 to purchase a ticket.

2009 series of events will start with a lighthearted subject. Discussing how tech companies can survive, reposition and emerge as champions ready for exit when the economic turnaround takes place in 24 to 36 months from now.

It all started with sub-prime mortgages followed by prestigious banks going under worldwide resulting in low liquidity and economic contraction. Large companies are cutting down costs and headcounts with significant hits on R&D. In most cases all R&D spend has been frozen or cancelled. This is a great time for tech startups to innovate, prove concepts and be there strong when the economy recovers.

Whilst the last three years saw the emergence of web 2.0 startups with no clear focus on revenue generation, the current economic climate is forcing these startups to think otherwise. The startups with the right strategy will emerge, grow and have the opportunity to acquire struggling startups.

The doors open at 6pm. We are fortunate to welcome a number of new speakers:

1. Mike Butcher - editor of TechCrunch UK, the ultimate authority on tech startup news in the UK and Ireland - Mike will be staying overnight in Manchester, so come prepared with your 60s if you want coverage on TechCrunch
2. James Brocket - CEO of Calibreone, the company that produces quarterly review of tech investments. See their reports at http://www.edocr.com/tags/calibreone
3. Ed French - Venture Capitalist at Rising Stars. Ed will speak on the impact to venture capital and what he is looking for in
4. Neil Parkin - Business Link North West. Large chunk of government funding will be channelled through BusinessLink/NWDA



1. Sponsor this event for £500.00+VAT
2. Startup4Slaughter - would you like this slot (cost £50 + VAT for two people)
3. Speaker: Tech founder/CEO - tell us your story if you had to drastically change your strategy to suit the credit squeeze
