On December 9th, we will welcome on stage two French-German experienced leaders with a strong entrepreneurial spirit and track record.
Our two entrepreneurs will share their opinions on the pre-requisites and challenges of internationalisation, their first 100 days in Munich and what made their journey successful, key success factors in establishing a presence in Germany and cultural differences with the French eco-system.
Specially geared towards entrepreneurs looking to expand within Europe and German founders interested in setting foot in France.
Looking forward to an exciting chat!

Founder & CEO
Vincent Huguet, CEO and co-founder of Malt. EDHEC alumnus, he worked for France Telecom and Telmex in Mexico for 7 years, heading their strategy and marketing departments. He also developed one of Mexico’s first e-commerce websites, offering flower and gift delivery services. Back in France he co-founds, and becomes the COO of the Aventers Group, where he develops a media site in Europe (Dromadaire), and an online printing platform (Ooprint).
As an entrepreneur, he struggled finding freelancers to work with him. When he meets Hugo Lassiège, freelance developer and founder of the tech community Lateral Thoughts, Vincent Huguet decides to create Malt with a strong ambition in mind: he wants to transform the market of IT consulting and intellectual services, with an open platform model, one that promotes transparency and community among freelancers.
With a community of 200,000 freelancers, and 30,000 active clients ( including 34 of all CAC 40 companies), Malt is the largest freelancing community and marketplace in France, Spain and Germany, backed up by top investors like ISAI (Blablacar) or SERENA (El Tenedor).
