By offering a degree of interactivity, the talks will allow business owners to discuss the issues they have encountered in terms of funding and development. Crowdfunding for a simple project, equity strengthening and “fintech” solutions for cash management are among the topics that will be covered. In addition, GEAR UP will present a platform project dedicated to building relationships between techno providers, business mentors and coaches, allowing all players to find suitable partners for manufacturing and marketing as quickly as possible.



Wednesday, October 29 will be dedicated to crowdfunding issues, starting with a talk organized in partnership with France’s crowdfunding association and followed by case studies.



The afternoon will kick off with a talk on funding strategies with Adrien Aumont, cofounder of Kiss Kiss Bank Bank, Camille Mollard, in charge of crowdfunding at My Major Company, Nicolas Lesur, chairman of France’s crowdfunding association, and Tsilla Kogel, in charge of development and partnerships at Ulule. The day will conclude with talks by Francois Carbone, cofounder and general manager of ANAXAGO, and Souleymane-Jean Galadima, in charge of development at WiSEED.



“Funding is a recurring issue in the digital industry. This is why we have decided to set up this think tank, in order to support promising projects. We are also building upon the momentum of Screen4All Forum, an event that promotes reflection and networking in order to better tackle the future,” explains Pierre Michéa, director of 7th Degree Consulting.

About Screen4All Forum


Screen4All, the forum on disruptive technologies and new uses for film, television and new screens, is the successor of “Dimension 3, the new dimensions of images,” launched in 2007. This event aims at offering participants opportunities for development, by providing insights into how the creation and distribution of digital contents are evolving, and by fostering international networking. During three days, Screen4All Forum breaks down the barriers that traditionally separate production, technology and investment. This event is organized by the Club HD and Avance Rapide. The Seine-Saint-Denis region, which has supported Dimension 3 for 5 years, now supports Screen4All.
