CES 2023, the world's largest consumer electronics fair, where thousands of startups showcase their innovations, took place in Las Vegas on January 5-8.
Togg returned to CES this year with what it calls the “Digital Mobility Garden" – a unique technology experience designed to take visitors on a journey to a more sustainable and connected mobility future – to explore new global partnerships and investment opportunities and display its mobility solutions where it made its international debut last year.
Under the auspices of the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Türkiye (TÜBITAK) and Istanbul Development Agency (ISTKA), 52 Turkish technology startups, spearheaded by Togg, introduced their innovative and technology-oriented products on approximately 260 square meters at the Istanbul Pavilion.
Among the latest innovations of Turkish startups were digital health and sustainability solutions, electronic door sensors, a bright driver monitoring concept, a route optimization and monitoring system, an AI-backed pattern design tool, an electric autonomous air taxi initiative, portable diagnostic devices, phone software, smart agriculture technologies, and many other technologies.
During a visit to Togg's digital mobility garden and Turkish startup booths, Minister of Industry and Technology Mustafa Varank said the Turkish startup ecosystem broke an all-time record with a total investment of over USD 1.6 billion, propelling Türkiye to the top 10 countries in terms of early-stage investments. Türkiye has also raised three unicorns and two decacorns in the last two years.
"We will maintain our interest in this fair to spotlight the success stories of the Turkish startup ecosystem," said Minister Varank, emphasizing the importance of companies founded by Türkiye's highly skilled young entrepreneurs who take their products to the world stage at events as like CES.
“We will further our support to bring successful Turkish ventures here to showcase their products, expand their network, attract potential investors, and open up to the world," Minister Varank promised.
