CES Las Vegas: what are the benefits for French start-ups?
Nearly 200 French start-ups will make the long-awaited trip to the CES in Las Vegas, which will be held from January 6 to 9, 2016. Most of them have been shortlisted by the CEA, the American association since last fall. Enough to leave them a few weeks to prepare and develop their offensive.

FrenchWeb: What do you expect from CES?
Klaxoon is a start-up based in Rennes. It markets a platform whose ambition is to boost teamwork.
Matthieu Bleucher, CEO of Klaxoon: Make Klaxoon known to as many people as possible: customers, partners, distributors, investors… live up to the potential of the solution!
Founded in 2010, Biomouv is an online coaching site for preventing patients with chronic illnesses.
Sébastien Pascal, CEO of Biomouv: By going to CES, we are pursuing three objectives: to initiate and develop our business in the United States and internationally; meet and promote our activity to American and European investors; strengthen our reputation in France in our business sector.
Fabulasys develops MOTIO, a system for monitoring the quality of life from a distance.
Alexandre Antiphon, co-founder and president of Fabulasys: We have the same expectations as for many start-ups, meeting American investors and partners and, of course, seeking visibility with journalists from all over the world.
The CES is a key step to facilitate the internationalization of a start up. We are very clearly targeting France and Europe, but also the USA and the Asian market.
Emersya is a start-up based in Montpellier which develops e-marketing solutions.
Aurélien Vaysset, co-founder and CEO: CES is the world’s largest showcase for innovation. Our expectations are therefore up to the event. We see our participation along two main axes:
On the one hand, to acquire notoriety among a public having a direct or indirect interest in using our solutions: brands of innovative products, techniques or design, e-commerce sites, digital agencies. On the other hand, find new customers and partners from companies and start-ups present on site.
In fact, we are currently working with several major “American” brands, but we wish to increase our presence in this territory which remains a reference and an obligatory passage if we want to carry out our international strategy.
