  • PIONEERING: Viva Technology invested in transformation. It gathers disruptors and innovators to pioneer change for a tomorrow most people only dare to imagine.
  • DARING: Viva Technology doesn’t believe in limits. The more audacious the proposition, the more we want to get behind it! They believe in breaking barriers, pursuing convictions, and realizing visions.

Bringing innovators together

Last year’s rendezvous saw 45,000 attendees from around the world, 5,000 startups and 600 speakers. Highlights included keynotes speeches by Eric Schmidt, Robin Li and David Marcus; The Self Driving Car Prototype from Waymo (which made its first European appearance at Vivatech 2016)
