List of selected startups for the 2019 exhibition:
Our start-up aims to improve the well-being of horses when they are in their stables, as well as the day-to-day life of horse owners. To achieve this, we have produced a device that closely monitors the horses and facilitates the transmission of information from the stables. The system detects any problems with the horse and sends out a notification. The Coho tracking device is placed in the horse's stable and allows users to remotely monitor and understand the horse’s habits and routine: pictures, videos, time-lapse sequences, stable temperature and door opening.
Ekibuzz is the new e-commerce platform for the equestrian sector. It aims to provide a whole host of products for every riding discipline, whether for professionals or amateurs. Ekibuzz also incorporates the use of a special currency for transactions, called the Buzz! With each purchase, customers automatically earn the value of 5% of their order in Buzz. Customers can sponsor as many people as they want to sign up to the site, and receive an additional 5% on orders placed by the people they sponsored.
A revolution in the riding world and in terms of conventional beauty codes: our products combine keratin, the essential hair-fibre protein, and biotin, the star vitamin of the stables, for a unique beauty-care treatment. Our flagship product is skin-care oil in spray format: light and residue-free, thanks to its unique evanescent components. It cleanses and untangles your hair, giving it a beautiful shine and wonderful fragrance.
Pangara produces top-of-the-range equipment made in France with natural, recycled materials, for both horses and riders. The first product to be launched by Pangara was riding pants. The pants combine technologies from mountain-biking and motorcycling to provide greater comfort, elegance and performance, while respecting the environment.
Securide is a collaborative platform that provides services for riders: sharing your horse via half board/rental solutions and sharing your transport means (rental of vans / trucks and co-transport).
L'Armure Française designs and sells Base Layers that are certified for protection against impacts. D3O technology has been incorporated into a mobile back section to allow it to be used with different Base Layers.
The winner of the 2018 Hippolia Startup Grand Prix was Hippn’Go, the first car-sharing app specialising in horse and pony transport, and they are returning once again to Equita Lyon.
