How do West Midlands Small and Medium sized businesses (SMEs) capitalise on this projected market explosion? Opportunities abound for existing companies to adapt their existing products to be ‘connected’, invent new products, or prepare to deliver services in a different way. Collaborations will be needed – no one company can do everything.
Innovation 1st & One Result Ltd will try to assist in this growth by hosting a regular meetup here in Wolverhampton. The aim is to build a community of likeminded organisations willing to collaborate and explore, and innovate with IoT products or application.
Our events are generally informal ‘Show and Tell’, featuring short talks from those innovating within the ‘Internet of Things’. Come and visit, explore and be inspired.
