This weekend Startupbootcamp IoT | Connected Devices selected the ten startups that will join the first cohort of its London-based program. A diverse range of startups working on an Internet of Things (IoT) device – from security, to intelligent horse monitoring technology and smart manufacturing – were selected to join the accelerator program.

After receiving, and reviewing, 425 startup applications from 61 countries, 21 finalists were invited to attend Startupbootcamp Selection Days between July 6-8th. The final ten to join the program were chosen following an intense three-day selection process that included expert workshops, pitches to program partners such as Cisco, DLL and Premier Farnell, and mentor feedback sessions.

Here is this year’s Startupbootcamp IoT | Connected Devices’ cohort:

What Next?
Kicking off this Autumn, Startupbootcamp IoT | Connected Devices will provide each startup with €15,000 in cash, office space in London connected to a full fast prototyping lab, and access to a global network of IoT and hardware experts and investors. The program’s corporate partners, which include Cisco, element14, HWTrek, RPD International, MJ Hudson, DLL, Wildfire PR and Hardware Club, will also be on-hand to provide support to startups. At the end of the three-month acceleration period a public Demo Day will be held, with each of the ten startups pitching in front of investors, angels and VCs.
