Company founded in 2015
Since 2014, the associates of the future innovative company, Flex Sense, has discussed the future of their respective trades and of the new economy. Whether it be sea trades, industrial businesses or renewable energies, the associates have foreseen that a new kind of field assistants would soon see the light. After a few weeks of research on the available technologies, some services still need to be set up, these would be technologies of high range, higher level of autonomy, with an affordable cost and an adapted user interface. The Flex Sense project was on track. Flex Sense was finally founded in July 2016 with a share capital of €300,000 and hosted within the business incubator LOCOnumérique in La Roche-sur-Yon (Vendée department, France)
