  • (1888PressRelease) December 22, 2017 - 25 start-ups have been selected to exhibit at the French Tech pavilion organised for the 5th consecutive year by Business France at next year’s CES in Las Vegas, on stand 50626, Eureka Park Hall.

    Hand-picked from among 100 companies after a competitive selection process, these 25 highly promising start-ups will present an insight into future technological trends.

    "We prioritised innovative companies that display genuine international development potential and which have the capacity to ramp up their commercial development so as to spark the interest of decision makers visiting CES," declared Thomas Delouvrier, who will be running the pavilion for Business France. “The prototype presented at Las Vegas must be available later this year in order to fully benefit from the leverage effect of the show.”

    At the last CES, France:
    - had the 3rd largest international delegation (after the US and China)
    - boasted the 2nd highest number of start-ups in attendance (200 at the 2017 CES), just behind the US and a long way ahead of Israel and China. 55 British companies exhibited at the event.

    These figures reflect the maturity of French Tech's ecosystems, all driven by globally-renowned talent, be it in the form of engineers, designers or mathematicians.

    It is expected that France will once again constitute the leading European delegation at the exhibition.

    A tech scene in ascent
    2017 is set to be a record year for French startups. In the first half of the year alone French start-ups have raised €1.7 billion in capital - about the same as in the whole of the previous year, according to CB Insights.

    5 of these companies received a “CES Innovation Award” at CES Unveiled Paris, the official event that previews some of the innovations to be presented at the next CES:
    • CamToy - robot fitted with a video camera to improve the well-being of dogs
    • Lancey Energy Storage - smart electric heater equipped with a battery and an energy management system. Lancey won a ‘Best of Innovations’ award.
    • myBrain Technologies - connected headphones with neuroscientific properties that measure stress levels and play appropriate relaxing music
    • R-Pur - first anti-pollution mask specially designed for people riding bicycles and motorbikes
    • Unistellar - telescope that amplifies light from stars

    Business France will also take 10 other startups to the CES in a ‘Family & Friends’ delegation. In total, therefore, its delegation will consist of 35 companies that will take part in the leading worldwide consumer technology show from 9th – 12th January.
