High Tech Paradoxal – Event management
Event organization @La Cantine, Paris.
My team and I (in the context of an entrepreneurial course at ESCP Europe Business School and the annual entrepreneurship week) launched the first French “High-Tech Paradoxical” event.
It took place on 26 November 2012 at La Cantine – the first co-working space created in Paris which is linked to other structures in France and abroad (San Fransisco, Barcelona, Sao Paulo, etc).
We were honored by the participation of great speakers, partners and a receptive audience. This event was a real success and an unforgettable experience for our team. I worked with three other students to build everything involved in this event, from the beginning to the end. In addition to the creation of the concept and the organization of the event itself (finding sponsors, speakers, etc), I also realized all the visual identity and communication elements.Speakers : Judith Rochfeld, Rémi Sussan, Dominique Sciamma, Benjamin Jean, François Taddei, Albertine Meunier, Dorothée BrowaeysTeam :Benjamin Lavergne, Valérie Le Guay, Mehdi Hadj-Hamou, Manon ElyLinks :

THE STORY OF THE PROJECT
THE BEGINNING : “EPSON LIFE PRINTER L3900″, AN ENTREPRENEURIAL PIECE OF ART
During the first week of september 2011, as I entered the ESCP business school, we participated to the IMPROBABLE event. The main idea of this was to create something based on our topics (my team and I had chosen to work on HIGH-TECH subjects) in order to help us generate ideas and find inspiration for the project we had to create few months later.
We ended with a realization called “Epson Life Printer L3900”
“The year 3024: all ecosystems having been disappeared for 30 years, Research makes big steps forward in the domain of artificial organic systems. Epson today exhibits its first organic printer for private individuals, succeeding where Nature has failed.
The manufacturer, through skilfully manipulating technology and raw natural materials, succeeds in recreating the conditions conducive to the emergence of life.”
Material used: vegetation, soil, computer hardware (printer, cables, screen).
