At CES Unveiled Paris , which was held in early October, attendees got a sneak preview of some of the hottest new French companies – here are six that caught our eye.

A few weeks ago, I took a train from London to York to indulge my inner medieval nerd. I’d lived for three years in New York before finally visiting its quaint namesake. One of the common themes throughout the weekend was that the city had such an abundance of history, it didn’t actually need to be discovered.

Here at Clarity we love an excuse for a great social event, and last weekend we were lucky enough to take a weekend trip to Berlin to network and spend some quality time with our global counterparts.

The weekend was jam-packed: meeting clients, new team members, new faces in the startup scene at the TechStars networking event in a thumping underground venue – in true Berliner party style!

The Berlin contingent were excellent hosts and hooked us up with the best venues so we got a real flavour of the city – sampling some real Bavarian food, and a considerable amount of German beer on our boat party!

Doing your homework is critical to understanding how to amplify your brand and prepare for market entry.

Alas, you hit ‘Enter’ on your Google search: “Does my startup need PR?”  Over 11 million results are now at your disposal – and you thought deciding on dinner was going to be difficult.  The Internet is crowded with various opinions and conflicting ideas, each providing their own merit and judgment for why a startup will or will not benefit from PR.

In 2014, Endeavor Insight worked alongside the Partnership for New York City to publish a report called “The Power of Entrepreneur Networks: How New York City Became the Role Model for Other Urban Tech Hubs.” The study conducted was an in-depth look at the rapid expansion of New York City’s tech sector, and more specifically, as a growing entrepreneurial ecosystem.

The results of the study demonstrated the influx of tech startups to Silicon Alley, and the potential power the urban hub has for creating economic growth. Over the course of a decade, the study proved that New York City’s tech sector grew twice as fast as Silicon Valley, and saw a 240% increase in venture capital funding from 2003 to 2013.  In 2013 alone, the tech hub saw more than $3.1 billion in funding invested into the tech community.  So, what impact does this rapid expansion of the NY tech sector mean for other startups and trades in the industry?
