CES is a major global consumer electronics and consumer technology tradeshow that takes place every January in Las Vegas, Nevada. This year Paris&Co is coming along with ENGIE and some of the best parisian innovative players to meet startups and innovators from all around the world!
Being at the CES with ENGIE is a way for Paris&Co to showcase the enormous energy of the Parisian ecosystem, and to open as many doors as possible for startups. In the third quarter of 2016, France caught up with the United Kingdom and has surpassed Germany in terms of financing startups, and Paris is the main driver of this momentum.
Paris&Co will highlight the talents of startups that it supports, like WeNow. WeNow produce a connected box that allows drivers to measure, reduce and neutralize their CO2 emissions. Paris&Co will also be showcasing a connected cocoon created by LeetDesign, which aims to make workspaces more attractive and creative.
Paris has launched an ambitious plan to make the ecosystem more international, aiming 30% of all companies in incubation to come from abroad by 2020. Paris&Co also wants to use the CES to attract international startups and to promote the Paris Landing Pack, a 4-week accelerator program that will allow foreign startups to immerse themselves in the Parisian ecosystem.
