For this new edition, the Chamber of Commerce of Luxembourg acts as a partner. “We will have a 100 square meter stand, which is bigger than the one of Belgium or Japan! We want to have a big community represented during that event” said Luxfactory. The companies interested in supporting the startups on the Luxembourg stand shall reach out to Luxfactory.
“We received over 100 applications, which show a real interest for this event. The sixteen startups all meet the criteria established by the CTA, in charge of the CES. A link with Luxembourg was one of the criteria” explained Elodie Trojanovski, CEO of Luxfactory.
Skeeled—having just announced a partnership with the ADEM in Luxembourg—is extremely grateful for this selection. “Currently expanding to France and the Netherlands, we are looking to develop internationally. We hope to meet with local actors in the US” said Brice Kempf, Head of Marketing at Skeeled. For CarVROOM, “CES is a real opportunity internationally, as well as a way to strengthen our network in Luxembourg. We hope to collaborate with different partners during this event so they can also benefit from this visibility”, said Marco Mignani, Founder and CEO.
For the startup Mu Design, the big announcement was no suspense. “Being the winner of the Best Pitch Award during the ICT Spring 2018, a CES entrance ticket as one of the Luxembourg startup was part of the winning package! As we designed consumer electronics products, this event is a real opportunity for us to show our products to an American audience. In addition to Ulo, we hope to be ready by January to present a new prototype to the CES public. In this new product, emotions and electronics shall also meet,” declared Vivien Muller, the founder.
Two startups, Motion-S and CoinPlus, already present last year, will once again have a chance to be in Las Vegas next January. “Last year experience was our first international exposure and this was the initial point to our entry in the German market. Our participation also gave our investors an international recognition” testified German Castignani, CTO and co-founder of Motion-S.
After last year edition and CES international exposure, Aiva Technologies completed a successful investment round. That all we wish for those 16 startups!
