Launch of the "Google Creativity Talks"

21 February 2012

As part of the new Google@ HEC Chair, the "Google Creativity Talks" are a series of meetings on the HEC campus, between students and creators (entrepreneurs, designers, artists) that wish to share their experiences.

The guests have each, in their own way, innovated, broken away from the status quo and pushed the boundaries, whether it was at the heart of large businesses, in culture, fashion, for humanitarian causes, by inventing a product, or by starting their own businesses. These talks offer students a perfect opportunity to interact with creators, without jargon, in an informal atmosphere and in small groups.

The first Google Creativity Talks are taking place today, with Rafi Haladjian, a pioneer of the Internet in France. Haladjian founded more than a dozen companies in the 1980s, including "Ozone," providing specialized WiFi access with the aim of creating "a pervasive network", as well as the company "Violet," a pioneer of objects of communication that created Nabaztag, the first rabbit connected to the Internet. He recently launched which explores ways of connecting the physical world to the virtual world.

These debates will be filmed and should soon be posted on the website dedicated to the Google@HEC Chair.
