Corinne Versini - Founder & CEO at Gene's Ink. By the late 2000s, Corinne was animated by a profound conviction: printed electronics is the future of electronics. New applications (sensors, flexible displays…) will represent important growth factors for our economy. As they are based on new usages (smart cities, internet of things, autonomous vehicles, communicating clothes…), they will meet fast expanding markets. In addition, they constitute valuable aids to sustainable development, energy conservation, improving people daily lives. To contribute to the implementation of these applications and develop products that will make us move from dream to reality, Corinne decided in 2010 to leave the comfort of a major company in traditional electronics, and founded Genes'Ink, an innovative startup in the field of nanomaterials and printed electronics. In 5 years, she created a company that is now positioning Europe at the forefront of global innovation in printed electronics; they created, with the R & D dream team accompanying her, radically innovative products, and the conditions for development of applications that will change people's lives.
