If you have been involved with IoT as an entrepreneur or developer, we could say that you’ve felt that getting all the layers together is definitely not an easy undertaking. (Believe me, we've felt that too). Besides from doing your homework and carrying out integrations with hardware, connectivity and cloud, if you are launching a real IoT business solution to the market, you’ll need another secret sauce: communities, support and talented people around you to accelerate your deployments and assure you that you are not alone navigating this whole ecosystem.
RIoT is an economic development nonprofit focused on Internet of Things (IoT) sector growth. RIoT hosts events across the country, helping to create and capture IoT opportunities for multinational companies, tech startups, research universities, nonprofits and smart cities. RIoT also runs an IoT-focused startup accelerator program and hardware prototyping lab.
Located in Raleigh, North Carolina, they’re a vibrant, fast and dynamic team of energetic team members always willing to help and find new ideas connecting around IoT (and whom we got the chance to actually meet in person on a sunny-Raleigh-day and got us some nice shirts as well, who doesn’t like geeky IoT souvenirs?)
Over the next months, we’ll be announcing some cool stuff and promoting mutual content around their podcasts, events and how Ubidots will contribute to RAP - RIoT Accelerator Program, with more than 75 companies across the IoT technology stack to learn, partner, and enable IoT products to market and scale.
