The 2019 edition of CES will see Business France once again organising the French Tech pavilion. With 160 startups in total, it will be the largest European delegation as well as being one of the largest at the show globally.  

New for 2019: 

  • 26 brand-new startups selected by a jury of Business France-certified experts will be exhibiting their breakthrough innovations. These promising startups were handpicked for their ability to take advantage of their presence at the CES and for their commercial potential.

  • Business France will be bringing together 9 French regions and 120 startups under the national banner of La French Tech.

  • The French government agency will also play host to around 40 startups from other parts of the country

 Back again for 2019

 For the 2nd year running, Business France will be running a French Pavilion for the automotive industry in the Central Plaza (LVCC, Central Plaza - CP-4), a space which will showcase how France is leading the way in the Auto Tech sector with connected and autonomous vehicles, intelligent transportation systems along with new mobility technologies.

Additionally, Business France will support a dozen startups as part of a ‘Family & Friends’ delegation, made up of firms who have worked with the government agency previously and whose technology shows commercial potential.

This year, the main innovative sectors showcased at the French Tech pavilion in Las Vegas’s Eureka Park will be:

  • Health

  • Mobility

  • Voice Assistants 

Who are the 26 startups selected for CES 2019’s French Tech pavilion?

  • Archos will present solutions that bring AI and blockchain to a wider audience. The ARCHOS Hello personal assistant combines visuals and voice commands, while maintaining maximum privacy. The ARCHOS Safe-T is a hardware wallet for cryptocurrencies.

  • Aveine has developed a connected wine aerator with a temperature sensor. The accompanying app allows the aerator to be adjusted by scanning the label on the wine bottle. It suggests an optimal aeration level depending on the wine in question.

  • Snips is an embedded voice-recognition platform for connected devices. Snips’ vision is to fit a smart voice assistant to every device, making the technology so intuitive that it becomes invisible. The company has already raised over $20m.

  • Carfit uses AI to analyse vehicle vibrations in real time and anticipate the maintenance requirements of coachwork parts without sensors (brakes, tires, wheels, shock absorbers, etc.).

  • Chronolife’s solution remotely monitors patients with heart problems using a connected t-shirt and app. The system offers continuous monitoring and alerts patients and doctors if required.

  • R-PUR has developed R-PUR NANO, an anti-pollution mask, made in France and specially designed for two-wheel users. It is equipped with a patented nano-filtration® technology that allows users to breathe clean air by filtering toxic particles, fine particles, pollen, etc. in the air. The mask can be connected to a mobile app that tells the users when to replace their filter according to their personal use and the real-time air pollution rate.

  • Vivoka (NRF) specialises in voice recognition and AI. Their objective is to revolutionize man-machine interaction using the human voice.
