A total of 53 Dutch start-ups will be making pitches at the cutting-edge US consumer electronics fair CES which opens on Tuesday in Las Vegas.

The Dutch delegation to the four-day fair, which attracts some 200,000 visitors, are exhibiting under the slogan ‘Dutch tech improving our lives’. They represent ‘the best tech solutions of the Netherlands in the fields of AR/VR, eHealth, robotics, kids tech, mobility and high-end audio’, the StartUp Delta website said.

The start-ups will showcase their products at the Holland Startup Pavilion, one of the largest single country pavilions at CES. The Dutch delegation is being led by prince Constantijn, brother of king Willem-Alexander, who heads the StartUp Delta promotional organisation.

Lightyear, the solar-powered car developed in Eindhoven is taking part in green energy programmes, Triggi which digitally links equipment is in talks with Amazon and Travis the Translator already has a (Japanese) distributor for the US market, the Financieele Dagblad said.
