Held for the first time in the Middle East, The French Tech Corner at b8ta is the result of a partnership between Business France (the national agency supporting the international development of the French economy) and the b8ta store, a software-powered retailer with stores in the Middle East, U.S., and Japan. “Business France is happy and proud to join forces with b8ta, a Retail pioneer, that has recently set up operations at Dubai Mall. b8ta brings up the most innovative products to local consumers, and it’s with a great pleasure that France will introduce highly diverse start-ups to showcase their latest Tech products. Selected French Tech companies will benefit from the “booster effect” of the Expo 2020 which will also open its doors on October 1st, with millions expected visits within 6 months,” stated Frederic Szabo, Managing Director Business France Middle East.
b8ta’s General Manager for Middle East and Africa, Ramit Harisinghani commented “b8ta is delighted to partner with Business France to launch 8 innovative brands to the region. b8ta’s analytics and feedback opportunities combined with Business France’s comprehensive ecosystem make it the ideal platform for French start-ups to launch a product in the Middle East. Brands can benefit from b8ta’s business model, called retail-as-a-service, that helps them market, manage and measure offline experiences.”
The UAE is by far the most dynamic country in terms of the tech ecosystem in the region and represents 35% of the 10,000 start-ups headquartered in the MENA region.
