Seven Scottish companies have won a place on our first-ever IoT Explorer programme, created to accelerate businesses’ adoption of the next industrial revolution.
The winners all receive up to 20 days’ support from the engineering and project management team at CENSIS. They will also receive access to facilities at Glasgow’s Tontine incubator, entry to CENSIS’s Internet of Things (IoT) workshops, and assistance in developing an investor pitch.
The winning companies are:

Dr Mark Begbie, Business Development Director at CENSIS said:
“These businesses demonstrate that a wide range of organisations are embracing what the IoT has to offer. Not only are they new and innovative ideas, but many of them tackle fundamental social challenges we face today. While some are established companies, looking to offer new services and products, others are starting from scratch. There are exciting developments underway across Scotland’s broad tech scene.
“The IoT can change the way businesses of all types work – Scotland is leading the way with a commitment from the Scottish Government to establishing a national IoT network and six regional networks already in place. Our aim is to help as many companies as possible, regardless of their size or sector, to be at the forefront of these developments.”
