Report: French start-ups flock to CES

Attendants at this week's International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which comes to an end in Las Vegas today, may have noticed a few more French accents on the show floor: according to Rude Baguette, an English-language publication that focuses on French technology start-ups, nearly 33 per cent of exhibitors in the official start-up area CES Eureka Park come from France. That equates to around 100 companies engaged in areas including connected hardware and the Internet of Things, and compares to just 20 U.S. start-ups listed on the show floor. Les Echos noted that French companies from the "old economy" also made the voyage to Vegas, although La Poste was the only one to take a large stand including a "digital hub" at the show. Article
