The High Tech Committee is composed of high-level people in the High Tech industry in the Bay Area. The committee aims at providing its members a highly interactive forum to discuss industry specific issues, thus facilitating networking and partnerships. The High-Tech Committee is above all a networking platform forming a tight-knit core of the FACCSF's High-Tech members, focusing on their interests, and developing corresponding events and conferences:
- Technology review sessions:
The Chamber offers the unparalleled opportunity for French startups and businesses to draw upon the experiences and expertise of their fellow expatriates. A unique forum for French high-tech enterprises, the Committee organizes bi-annual lunches in Redwood City in order for our members to network, present their Business model or challenges, and find solutions.
- High Tech Conferences:
Covering a great variety of topics, the Committee’s conferences help the committee’s members meet with high level speakers of their industry and learn from their experience. In addition to organizing conferences to discuss important topics of the industry, it also promotes other organizations' events fitted to our Membership and Calendar.
- Web, Wine & Wisdom:
Because we love new Web apps and because we enjoy discovering new wines, it seemed natural to mix it all in one event.Web Wine & Wisdom is a networking event made for tech lovers, entrepreneurs, developers, inventors and startups and anyone who is curious about new tech applications and of course, loves wine.
