From L.A. to Tokyo: An entrepreneur journey – ApéroTalk with Adam Boujida
Have you ever wondered how much your life can change in only one year?
Falling in love with a new country and culture, learning to code, finding a first engineer job and launching a company in a completely foreign country: that is how much Adam achieved during his first year in Tokyo.
In this talk, he will take us through his entrepreneurial journey, from joining our fourth Le Wagon batch, to networking his way inside Tokyo, meeting his co-founder and combining a full-time job with launching a fashion e-commerce platform.
If you’re looking to launch your own business or want to understand how to efficiently network, this talk is for you!
ApéroTalk is our event series based on a very simple (and very French) concept: Apéro and Talk.
