France’s tech community will descend en masse to Lyon on October 1st and 2nd for La Cuisine du Web’s and PRES Université de Lyon’s signature tech conference, Blend Mix. This year’s edition is jammed packed with 80 speakers who will animate various roundtables, workshops and talks, a great startup competition which we wrote about last week, and, of course, various opportunities to meet and network with France’s top tech talent.

As the Blend Mix team strive to include and bring together participants and speakers from various backgrounds, all parts of France’s tech ecosystem prominently figure throughout the conference, including investors, incubators & accelerators, enterpreneurs, startupers, bigger tech companies, developers, and universities. As a result, the speakers at this year’s edition reflect this diversity and, of course, include several of France’s top tech names. You can check-out Blend Mix’s impressive list of speakers here.

Structured around the main themes of Business, Marketing, Design, Research and Tech, the various workshops, round tables, and talks, run the gamut with a wide range of topics including:

  • How to Bootstrap Your Startup
  • Expanding Internationally
  • Managing Your Brand in a Multi-Device/Multi-Screen world
  • Science and Social Media
  • Lean Analytics
  • And many, many more!
