Masterclass: Julien David Nitlech “After Microsoft, Google, Criteo…Advice from a VC to future ‘Entrepreneurs 5.0’”

By | January 5, 2017

My colleague Bruno Martinaud shared an invitation with me, to a public event that he is organising at Ecole Polytechnique – n event, which looks rather interesting and which (space permitting) is open to anyone interested.


Bruno directs the “Technology Venture Master Program” at Ecole Polytechnique, within which he organises a series of such Master Classes – in partnership with the Direction for Entrepreneurship and Innovation (our incubator and accelerator) at Ecole Polytechnique, as well as with the student association “Cabinet Startup”.

The next of these Master Classes happens on Tuesday the 10th of January, given by Julien David Nitlech (a graduate of Ecole Polytechnique and of Telecom-ParisTech) is entitled “After Microsoft, Google, Criteo…Advice from a VC to future ‘Entrepreneurs 5.0’”.

The Master Class is happening on January 10, 2017, at 18h00 in the Drahi-X-Novation Center of l’Ecole Polytechnique.

As there’s limited seating (and this promises to be an exciting event), registration is necessary, on this link.

Without repeating Julien’s entire bibliography, he is currently a partner at Iris Capital, where his main activities include strategic investments in early-stage start-up’s in France and in Europe, and he has considerable experience both from investing in the tech-world and from “operating in it” himself, as an entrepreneur.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
