Few testimonials of the FABA Startup 2017's laureates:

"FABA last year was not only a really awesome opportunity to connect with great folks from the French/American community, but also to get noticed by people who saw the impact and business opportunity of Ava and later on became investors. Come for the French champagne, and leave with amazing connections that will last a lifetime."  Thibault Duchemin, Founder & CEO, Ava (www.ava.me)

"Being part of the FABA startup competition last year was an amazing experience for Atlas! Not only were we able to get very valuable feedback throughout the competition from investors and potential users but it brought us business! We are launching a challenge at the end of the month that came from it!Magali Mathieu, Chief Partnership Builder, AtlasRun (www.atlasrun.com)
