LeWeb would be getting a bit
more TechCrunch
flavor
this year. For the seventh iteration of the popular tech
conference based in Paris, France, organizers Geraldine and
Loic Le
Meur
decided to make their startup competition a bit more like
a mini-TechCrunch Disrupt. That is, of the 16 startups launching, 3
will get time on the big stage to present in front of everyone and
a winner will be chosen. And that won’t be the only
TechCrunch influence felt.

As you can see on the just-released program for LeWeb
’10, TechCrunch names are all over the agenda. A group
of us are slated to interview some of the big names in tech on
stage during the two-day conference, which takes place on December
8 and 9 this year. And there seem to be a range of other
interesting talks and panels as well.

A taste of the highlights:

  • Leaders from Google, Facebook, Twitter, Digg, Mozilla,
    Foursquare, WordPress, EA, MySpace, UStream, Evernote, Microsoft,
    PayPal, Nokia, RIM, and more on stage.
  • You can learn about how to get your company acquired (with
    people from Microsoft and Twitter).
  • You can learn about how to create a top mobile game (with the
    CEO behind the company responsible for Angry Birds).
  • You can hear about innovation in other parts of the world, such
    as Japan (with the CEO of DeNA).
  • You can hear about where the media is heading (with people from
    CNN and Techmeme).
  • A partner at DST will talk about investing hundreds of millions
    in Zynga and Facebook.
  • You can learn about the building of a solar pane plane.
  • Howard
    Lindzon
    , Gary
    Vaynerchuk
    , Leo Laporte,
    Dave
    McClure
    , Yossi Vardi,
    Dave
    Morin
    , and more will all be on hand for talks.

And, of course, the Disrupt-like startup competition finals with
be hosted by our own Michael
Arrington
and August Capital partner David
Hornik
.

For a longer intro, be sure to check out Loic and
Geraldine’s full rundown in the video below. And if
