Most of the companies I sit down with on these podcasts are well-established, and my interview subjects have a lot if history behind them. But I got pitched by a French start-up called CityMeo, and I agreed to meet up for a chat several weeks ago at ISE in Amsterdam, even though I knew zero about them.
CEO David Keribin says his company was started with three IT-engineer colleagues, operating from the premise that all the digital signage solutions on the market “sucked” for day-to-day users.
I thought that was a bit of a reach, but wanted to hear more about the French firm, which has quickly developed a client base in 19 countries and does everything from retail to internal communications in French nuclear plants.
This is the last of the dozen-plus interviews I did at ISE.
