The 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show (International CES) kicked off earlier today and is poised to be a record-breaking show with more than 3,600 exhibitors across the largest show floor in history with more than 2.2 million net square feet of exhibit space.
The International CES is the world’s gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technologies. Held in Las Vegas every year, it has served as the proving ground for innovators and breakthrough technologies for more than 40 years—the global stage where next-generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace.
This year, OurCrowd has extensive representation on the ground at CES 2015, with our various team members, investors from our community, and several of our portfolio companies (some of which are finalists in various competitions!).
Here is an overview of the who, where, and the highlights:
