Summing Up CES 2017 for FoldiMate

As you probably know we returned from CES 2017 Las Vegas just a few weeks ago.

This was a fabulous event for FoldiMate. We know that people are waiting for a solution to help them with the tedious chore of laundry folding, however, we didn’t imagine in our wildest dreams, that there would be so much excitement around FoldiMate.

For those of you who weren’t lucky enough to attend this mind blowing event, we thought we would recap some of our highlights during our trip to CES 2017 Las Vegas.


Free FoldiMate Unit Social Competition

During the event we ran a social media competition and the lucky winner will be one of the first people to receive a FoldiMate. If you were one of the contestants we just want to thank you so much for taking part. We really appreciate your time and creativity!

Read our post with all the runners up are their submissions.

The winner was Karen Bleacher with this video:




And there were so many more, especially whiteboard submissions:




Two Semi-Finalist Pitches

1. Showstoppers Launchit Event

The day before CES 2017 opened we were invited to pitch as one of the 12 finalists out of over 100 candidates. This is a curated pitch event built around the companies that exhibit in Eureka Park. If you would like to take a look at all the finalists, Techcrunch wrote a great write-up.

2. Techstars Startups Competition





On the last day of CES, FoldiMate took another trip, albeit much shorter than the others, to the other side of the Eureka Park hall. We were honored to be one of the ten finalists invited to pitch on the start-up stage. 

We apologize to anyone we shouted at on the way, but it wasn’t easy to carry the mock-up between all the crowds in the Eureka Park area.

Many Media Interviews

Fox News:

We were delighted to be invited to appear on Fox News. Gal Rozov, our CEO, and one of our early investors took our FoldiMate mock-up to the place they were recording at 4am! But it was well worth it. 




And many others either covered FoldiMate or came by our booth and stand to interview us.

And Even More Press Coverage

We have been so overwhelmed with the amount of press coverage we received during CES, and it just keeps growing.  This makes it all the more exciting for us as we realize just how many people really are fed up with folding their laundry and are looking for an affordable and practical solution.

If you are interested in reading some of the articles that were the results of CES, here are a few of our favorites:
