Later in 2013, Sketchfab (LeCamping Season 3) was accepted into TechStars NYC after raising an angel round. They’ve since seen explosive growth, raised a venture roundintegrated with Photoshop, Kickstarter & more, and have positioned themselves within the 3D imaging space.

Outside of LeCamping, French startups Psykosoft and Hull.io have also participated in TechStars, making France one of the most represented countries behind the US & UK.
