We wanted to THANK:

– all participating startups for their enthusiasm, quality and great pitches
– the audience for attending and encouraging the pitching startup entrepreneurs
– the jury for their insightful feedback and judgment
– our sponsors for their continuous support

Without all of you, this event would not have been possible to create.

We’re currently evaluating new IoT Stars requests in different cities and thinking about where we’re going with this concept in the near future after this initial successful start.

We’ll keep you posted!
