Tel Aviv – May 2016
When Manuel Valls, French prime minister came to Tel Aviv back in May 2016, he chose the 5 most promising French-Israeli startups to present their projects. Newzik was selected from the many promising companies to present its Sheet Music Reader app, It was indeed a great honor for us to be present! This event took place in a confined room with merely 15 people present and no journalists.
Needless to say, Manuel Valls was truly amazed by our project and all the possibilities Newzik had to offer. In fact, this event became quite a famous and symbolic moment, stirring media coverage from some of the most important French media companies, such as Le Monde.
We discussed many elements with the prime minister, from how delayed the music sector is in terms of a Digital Revolution (He agreed with us sadly). To consequently explaining our main goal to him: to make a musician’s life easier with the Newzik app (He fully supported our initiative).
What was the next step? A visit from his wife, Anne Gravoin, a great violin-player who is waiting for our solution to her paper sheet music issues!
Stay tuned for further updates!
