LAST YEAR’S WINNER

SKYLIGHTS

“Participating and winning the first edition of Pitch in the Plane was a fantastic experience: novel, exciting, and forcing us to boil down our company to a bite-size format. Altogether, this experience gave me the confidence to enter the US market and establish SkyLights as a French-American company. Since then, we joined Y Combinator, completed our seed round, and are now growing with our first airlines proposing our cinematic VR inflight entertainment to their long-haul passengers.”

David Dicko, Founder & CEO of SkyLights

Winner of the first edition of Pitch in the Plane

In 2017, with the 4th edition of La French Touch Conference New York City, Pitch in the Plane is coming back for its 2nd edition.

Join us for an experience you will never forget!
