LeWeb would be getting a bit
more TechCrunch
this year. For the seventh iteration of the popular tech
conference based in Paris, France, organizers Geraldine and
Loic Le
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
    , Gary
    , Leo Laporte,
    , Yossi Vardi,
    , 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
and August Capital partner David

Geraldine’s full rundown in the video below. And if
