thierry-lepercqSymbio FCell, a company specializing in fuel cells, has just finalized a new fundraising campaign with Engie and Michelin, one of its historical investors. The French company, which in particular invented a system to extend the autonomy of hybrid vehicles (which run on electricity and hydrogen), wishes to develop in the field of hydrogen mobility.

The Engie group has installed more than 5,000 charging points for electric vehicles in Europe. “VSThis project perfectly illustrates the Group’s desire to develop hydrogen mobility by joining forces with partners in the sector», Indicates Thierry lepercq (pictured opposite), Deputy CEO of Engie. The amount of the transaction was not disclosed.

smartcycle-teamBringing recycling into the collaborative era, such is the promise of Smart Cycle, an associative start-up created in 2015 in Aix-en-Provence. The principle is simple: thanks to the Smart Cycle application, the user can geolocate an object he wants to give away, or an object abandoned in the street. He can also carry out a search by category of objects or by geographical areas, and be put in contact with another user wishing to donate a good which interests him.

If within 12 hours of the geolocation of a good, it has not been retrieved by a member of the Smart Cycle community, its location is transmitted to the bulky waste service of the Town Hall. Created as part of a student project by Daniel Vanetto, the association now has a dozen members (photo opposite). It is supported by the Veolia Foundation, the Aix Marseille University Foundation, as well as by the CGI network.

emarketer-social-media-king-sept2016Difficult to measure, the return on investment of social media spending? In any case, this is what emerges from a study produced by Fuka, the Business School of Duke University in the United States and taken over by eMarketer. We learn that 50% of B2B marketers (and selling products) are not able to demonstrate the impact of their social media strategy on their activity. This proportion drops to 28% for B2C (product) marketers.

Another lesson from the study is that it is globally difficult for marketing professionals to measure the quantitative impact of their presence on social networks: only 16.9% of B2B marketers (products) and 17.4% of B2C (product) marketers achieve this. On the other hand, professionals working in the marketing of services find it easier to measure this impact, if we are to believe the results of the study.

Social media spending is expected to continue growing, however, to more than 20% of total digital advertising spending by 2017, according to eMarketer estimates.

The medical equipment market, which generates around 100 billion euros in revenue per year, employs 575,000 people in Europe, according to information from Stibo Systems.

We learn in particular that three quarters of medical devices used in the world are in the United States, Japan, Germany, France and Italy.
