Startupbootcamp IoT | Connected Devices

Only 5 Days Until Demo Day

About the Accelerator

Startupbootcamp IoT | Connected Devices is a dedicated accelerator for startups working on a smart connected device within both Consumer IoT (wearables, assisted living, connected homes) and Industrial IoT (smart environment, smart factories and smart retail). We provide funding, mentorship, office space in London and access to a global network of corporate partners, mentors, investors and VCs, for up to 10 selected Internet of Things (IoT) startups across the globe in a three month program. During these three months, and beyond, our aim is to help startups secure further funding in their business from London’s thriving investment scene.

The program is run by MD Raph Crouan, using his extensive background in strategy and business development across hardware products. Raph has assembled a team of the most prominent connected hardware developers and thinkers within the IoT space, allowing startups to collaborate with 100+ mentors, partners, and investors to build world class hardware and IoT products.

The program works with a number of supporting partners to provide exposure and access to a network of industry professionals that most early-stage IoT and Connected Device startups would not be able to access otherwise. These connections also mean that startups can benefit from manufacturing support, particularly thanks to the program’s links to Asia and China.

Nine startups from across the world are currently being accelerated in London, with preparations being made for Demo Day on January 25th. You can learn more about what they’re working on below.
