We are so grateful to be one of ten New York startups selected to participate in the NYC-Paris Business Exchange to implement our company in France.

“Bonjour Madame la Maire, enchanté de vous rencontrer” (“Hello Mrs the Mayor, delighted to meet you”); the first distinct words we exchanged with the Mayor of Paris.

On the 7th of March, Anne Hidalgo invited us to her impressive 18th century office to present and talk about our project.

What an impressive City Hall! The paintings date from Bonaparte’s time, which is considered new!

She taught us how Paris, open to innovation, focusing on investment, became a real elevator for startups to succeed.

She was thrilled to hear about our innovation, the new way we want people to relate to their belongings, to consume, and our new technology, TygaTrax. She is willing to support us to grow. _L3A0914

Next step: Represent TygaBox in front of more than 200 investors inside of the city-hall next month.
