Le Liban est un tout nouveau venu sur la scène high-tech internationale : son premier fonds d’investissement y a vu le jour en 2008, et les success stories entrepreneuriales s’y comptent encore sur les doigts de la main.

Pourtant, l’ancienne Suisse du Moyen-Orient, frontalière de la Silicon Wadi israélienne, ne manque pas d’atouts pour émerger à l’échelle régionale des pays arabes, voire internationale. Quels sont-ils, et quel intérêt présentent-ils également pour les entrepreneurs et investisseurs étrangers ?

J’ai eu l’occasion d’interviewer 4 acteurs de cet écosystème émergent, à la fois côté entrepreneurs et côté investisseurs.

Dans cet entretien, nous rencontrons Joseph El Khoury, co-créateur de l’application Keefak, et fondateur de la start-up Dash Tag.

5 start-ups à suivre: retour de Connec’Sud 2015

Connec’Sud 2015 : 5 start-ups à suivre

Ayant participé comme jurée au Connec’Sud 2015 de Montpellier, j’ai eu l’occasion d’y rencontrer quelques start-ups fort intéressantes qui méritent qu’on s’y attarde quelque peu.

Connec’Sud est d’abord un événement généraliste au service du développement des entreprises régionales, ce n’est pas l’événement emblématique des start-ups de la French Tech Montpelliéraine. Il n’empêche que pas mal de start-ups avaient fait le déplacement, soit en tenant des stands soit en participant à des challenges. En voici une sélection toute personnelle de cinq, avec lesquelles j’ai pu discuter et qui sont sur des marchés à joli potentiel !

  • Snapkin : un outil de mesure et de mise en plan 2D-3D en quelques minutes pour architectes
  • Laoviland Expérience : automatisation créative animée, droit sur le terrain d’Adobe
  • Keetiz : un ambitieux challenger dans la fourmilière du couponing mobile
  • Com 3D : animation 3D pour la communication scientifique et technique
  • Human Responsive par BSWEB : veille concurrentielle pour le retail géolocalisée en temps réel
