Prynt, a start-up created by two alumni, Clément Perrot and David Zhang (X2010) is proud to announce on its Twitter account, that CNN has mentionned them in its short video on the Best of CES. Since its opening on January 6, Clément Perrot and David Zhang are among the 3,600 exhibitors of CES in Las Vegas. CES is regarded as the global stage where next-generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace, a place where French start-ups must be in order to get well-known. 150,000 to 160,000 people, coming from more than 140 countries, usually attend the International CES.
Prynt, the start-up created by Clément Perrot and David Zhang, will offer the next generation of instant camera allowing anyone to print instant pictures with a simple and small device plugged in his/her smartphone.
Echy is among the other start-ups linked to École Polytechnique at CES. Echy was founded in 2012 by two alumni (X2008), Quentin Martin-Laval and Florent Longa. Alma Guiraoa Guirao, Echy's business developer, is in Las Vegas to represent them. Echy is a hybrid lighting system which is constituted of two sources for lighting: natural solar lighting and LED lighting. The technology captures and concentrates the sunlight outside the buildings and brings it inside through optical fibers. Thus, during the day there is no need to use energy to enlighten interior buildings. When the solar light is not sufficient, it is completed by LED lighting system.
Overall, about twenty French start-ups are exhibitors at CES, in Las Vegas.
