To make meetings more efficient and interactive, the start-up has developed software with a box, which provides access without an Internet connection and allows different activities to be created. “Instead of making slides, we can ask a question to a group and everyone can answer from their phone, computer or tablet,” says its founder, Matthieu Beucher.
