The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is the most influential tech event in the world, the proving ground for breakthrough technologies and global innovators. CES 2023 showcased more than 3,200 exhibiting companies.

A delegation from the Netherlands participated in the CES: 40 Dutch startups and 30 scale-ups presented themselves at two Tech Pavilions to exchange ideas, foster collaborations, and do business. They focused on “Tech for a Responsible Future” and spanned various tech categories that will define future economies. The companies provide solutions for challenges like energy transition, health care & mental well-being, data security, food safety, and sustainability.

The success and innovative character of the Dutch delegation was reflected by a record number of CES Innovation Awards won by companies from the Netherlands. Hydraloop (awarded as overall winner during the CES 2020) was among them. They launched their latest product, the Hydraloop Concealed, globally at the Consumer Electronics Show.

Other interesting startups and scale-ups included: Orbisk, which employs progressive AI technology to monitor and reduce food waste in professional kitchens. They secured a USD 1.1 million investment round dedicated to saving food from going into waste bins. RanMarine has developed the world’s first autonomous aquadrome that cleans pollution from waterways and collects data about water quality: The WasteShark, which was exhibited at the scale-up pavilion. DEN Smart Home (CES Innovation Award 2021 Honoree) presented the world’s first wireless, communicating door strike at the CES. Another participant was Headroom Assistance, which offers remote executive assistance for c-suites, VPs, and entrepreneurs.
