By @SimonCocking. Great preview interview with Ralph Crouan, Managing Director Startupbootcamp IoT who will be speaking on the panel “IoT Acceleration/Incubation, how to scale up and grow your IoT businesses ” at Dublin City University Alpha Innovation Campus, on May 30th. Learn more by coming to the DCU / ITN IoT event on May 30th, last few tickets available here.
1 min pitch for what you are doing now?
Startupbootcamp IoT is now recruiting for it’s second year Innovation program & looking for disruptive Industrial IoT & Impactful Consumer IoT founders around the world (details here)
We are also looking for additional Corporate Partners that are willing to jump on the innovation waggon with a global brand as Startupbootcamp and learn by doing with the best of breeds of IoT Entrepreneurs over the next 2 years.
How were the last 12 months, what worked well, what didn’t move as quickly as you would have liked?
We closed our 1st year program & had a very successful cohort with already one of the startup closing their funding round not even 2 weeks post Demo Day. This year brought a great deal of learning for us as we saw the need to target more aggressively the B2B market or Industrial IoT space. We therefore modify our recruitment strategy to accommodate for 80% IIoT & 20% Impact Consumer IoT.
Fantastic news this AM for one of our very own from this year's cohort – only 2 months after end of the program ! https://t.co/6JcsooY5Bn
