Thirsty Pear was the first step of our project

Our idea was to provide to a french audience an overview of what was happening in the tech industry in general and in the Silicon Valley in particular.

Thirsty Pear started in 2013 when IoT (Internet of Thing) became the new big thing. All of a sudden every objects of our daily life had to be connected, smart, well-designed... We thought it would be a good idea to start keeping track of all those new gadget and try to showcase them to our french audience. We wanted to share!

Thirsty Pear quickly found its audience and we thought about what would be the next step. It naturally occurred to us that this next step would be to sell those new objects online and make them accessible to everyone. The idea for Akin Lab was born but before becoming a true e-commerce website we needed to rethink everything we knew about it to create a truly new experience. In short rethink what it means to discover gadgets online today.

We are now proud to introduce you to Akin Tech, the new place to discover first all the fresh tech!
