Shortly after the Brexit vote in the UK, France took over the position as the world’s fifth largest economy. The “Grande Nation” has a very vital startup ecosystem and with Paris one of the leading startup hubs in Europe. Given that France itself represents quite a big market, many French startups still tend to build products and services for their home market first (or only) instead of building international companies right from the start. Nevertheless, France already “produced” quite a significant number of tech success stories. Companies like BlaBlaCar, Criteo, Deezer and Dailymotion were all created in France.
In the beginning of this year we took a close look at the French startup scene with the goal to provide you with a list of 10 promising startups to watch in 2017. All of the startups we’re listing below were founded within the last two years and each one of them is -at least in our view- heading towards a successful future.
Invivox has been elected one of the top 10 most innovative start-up in France in 2016
In all activities, Mentoring is the basis of the transmission of knowledge. As general Manager of BENEWMEDICAL laboratory,I could say that each day our mission is to insure that we train physicians to acquire the best technique with our Medical devices.
Only Experts could offer a real high quality of training and Invivox permit us to manage and control these training between experts and practitioners, face to face in OR, that we decide to convert with our technology.
Moreover, this is a booster for the company, it’s not only a simple solution to plan the training, but as you could know, organize a training is time consuming for all my team, now it’s time saving, we could convert faster more practitioners, so sales increase higher.
Invivox is a worldwide medical platform that connects medical experts and practitioners in view of offering on-site (inside the operating room), one-to-one practical training sessions alongside experts.
Invivox reinvents medical mentoring, which is the basis of the transmission of knowledge between physicians.
Practically speaking, medical experts open their OR to other surgeons from around the world.
On one hand, Experts set the dates, the number of physicians they can accomodate in their OR and the price per participant.
On the other hand, surgeon can look for a specific training, register and pay on line and then travel to the place of the Expert for a real live mentoring experience.
According to physicians, there is no better way to acquire a new technique.
