Celebrate with us our move to our new offices and the official launch of the French Tech Atlanta

WE MOVED!!! and we are excited to welcome you in our new offices where we will be hosting the brand new French Tech Atlanta.

Join us on September 9 , 2021 for the grand opening ceremony celebrating the FACC move and the official launch of La French Tech Atlanta in our new Peachtree Corners offices. Our member, Curiosity Lab, will showcase its new infrastructure that enables French startups to work with innovators and prove out new technologies in a real-world environment. These vibrant technology demonstrations are reflecting the power of city-owned connected infrastructure, including cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) technology. From autonomous vehicles/machines/drones/services, robotics to sustainable technologies such as solar roadways developed by French company, Wattway.

Live demonstrations will be featuring:

- an AV Shuttle being there for attendees to get on and see
- a Drone Test - The company, a Startup out of GA Tech, uses real time data to map our flight paths for drones and can adjust path in real time based on changes in the environment
and more

We will also have the pleasure to welcome Stephan Donze, founder and CEO of French software company, AODocs – which recently moved its headquarters to the Metro Atlanta region, as our Keynote speaker
