Eureka Park, Hall G, Stand 60200
The key focuses of the startups selected for the 10th CES participation of Business France / La French Tech are health, smart homes, mobility, and vocal assistants. Among the 170 exhibiting companies at Eureka Park, Business France and an expert panel of judges have selected 14 startups from 100 applicants that will showcase their innovations at the show. The startups were chosen based on three criteria: the innovative nature of their products, their ability to take full advantage of attendance at CES, and the potential for commercial success.
Business France is also supporting six other, more mature, startups: Daan Tech, Y-Brush, TALKR.ai, Keymo, BLabs, and Vivoka.
To take advantage of the event and fully benefit from the CES knock-on effect, Business France set up an upstream support program. The startups were able to attend 23 coaching sessions to help them prepare for the event. At the sessions, the startups learned how to pitch in English adapted to different audiences and perfected their knowledge of the American ecosystem, US regulations, customs aspects, and intellectual property.
On site, Business France will also connect startups with major international key accounts.
