Well, after a tonne of entries and a pretty intense sifting process, Le Web, the annual gathering of the tech tribes in Paris, has announced the names of the 16 startups that will present during the startup competition — organised for the first time this year in partnership with TechCrunch Europe.
The companies selected are either existing companies launching new products or new startups entirely. As you can probably tell from the list, Le Web is very much going back to its roots. This is Le Web’s 6th edition and the startup competition has been going on since 2006 (the 4th edition is this year). So we’ll be using this platform to help some of the earliest stage companies get traction with their ideas. I think it’s going to be exciting to watch.
