As you know, here at IoT For All we’re dedicated to providing the highest-quality, unbiased content, resources, and news centered on the Internet of Things and related disciplines. That’s because IoT is hard. The Internet of Things will inevitably transform our lives, but for that to happen people need to actually build it.
For all the builders out there, there are many barriers.
- Technical and design challenges: How do you pick the right technologies, components, and features?
- Understanding the world of manufacturing: Just having a prototype isn’t enough, navigating volume orders and pricing, supply chain management, certification, etc. can be a full-time job.
- Broad requirements for success: Hardware development, software development, design, sales, marketing, you name it. IoT spans so many disciplines.
- Funding: You have a product and some early traction, but need to scale. Getting in touch with the right VCs and getting your pitch right isn’t easy.
As such, we want to highlight a group that we recently discovered, they’re aimed at addressing these issues.
