Central Research Laboratory Pitch Event, London - Nov 28th, 2019

Posted by Thomas Andersson on

We visited because we have met some very interesting people at these events in the past. And, this time did not disappoint. Of the companies exhibiting or the startups pitching, none were very impressive. We wold recommend a review of the mentors on the programme since there was one good idea (out of 4 pitched), but that idea has not had the input it could have had and it may simply be too late when the product actually launch - if at all. Our scores for the evening as a whole: Startups: 2/5Organisation 5/5Networking opportunities: 4/5Event location: 5/5 (big shout...

A review of IoT Week, COEX Trade Centre, Seoul, South Korea

Posted by Thomas Andersson on

IoT Week Korea, 25 Oct, 2019 COEX, Seoul, South Korea STIQs verdict (of 5 possible): Event link: IoT World Location link: COEX We have visited a few trade shows at COEX over the years and, while the area is impressive for its many shops and restaurants, trade shows are not the largest, nor the most impressive. Unfortunately. IoT World Korea 2019 is no exception.   Note: Our visit was a chance visit and was nothing that was planned or which we travelled to South Korea to visit. Hence this feedback is more positive than it might have been.   Senscan...

I was invited to talk about ecommerce fulfilment robotics when the other panellists were talking about PUDO which may have been...
