LAS VEGAS, JANUARY 5TH - 8TH 2017
France is more than baguettes, brie, fashion and fine wine. We’re Parrot, Sevenhugs, Giroptic, Digitsole, Netatmo, Devialet…
We’re “La French Tech”, a thriving community of entrepreneurs, engineers, designers, investors, tech lovers, and other talented people who are embracing the potential of technology to change the world.
A tech boom has been unleashed in France thanks to the explosive combination of our renowned creativity with our flair for algorithms.
We have some of the best engineering schools in the world. Our consumer electronics companies thrive on this talent, which combines expertise in computer sciences with electronics, mechanics and design.
We’re also seeing a rise in the not-very-French (or so you thought!) qualities of confidence and risktaking. Combined with government reforms making it (much) easier to start a business means our entrepreneurs (yes – it IS a French word!) are not only thriving, but eager to display their wares to the world.
We’re bringing the French Touch to connected objects, e-health, cybersecurity, mobility and more. At CES last year, they called us “Tech’s Unexpected Powerhouse” (Forbes). TechCrunch said French Startups Are “Taking Over CES.”
France was the leading foreign delegation at CES in 2015 and 2016, when 200 French companies exhibited, 128 of them startups (many of whom took home awards.) This year there will be 225 French startups, 41 of them mentored for international pitching and accompanied by Business France.
