We announced the ten startups that will join the first cohort of our Startupbootcamp IoT | Connected Devices program. A diverse range of startups working on an Internet of Things (IoT) device - from security, to intelligent horse monitoring technology and smart manufacturing - were selected to take part in the accelerator program.
After receiving, and reviewing, 425 startup applications from 61 countries, 21 finalists were invited to attend Startupbootcamp Selection Days between July 6-8th. The final ten to join the program were then chosen following an intense three-day selection process that included expert workshops, pitches to program partners such as Cisco, DLL and Premier Farnell, and mentor feedback sessions.
Receiving such a large number of applications for the program shows just how much attention there is on IoT and hardware right now. Each one of our ten startups has a great team behind them, and the range of markets they are attacking points the way to how IoT will develop in the coming years, from AI to Industrial IoT, and everything in-between.
Take a look at this year's Startupbootcamp IoT | Connected Devices’ cohort here.
Very much looking forward to working with them all in Autumn !
