About the Startup

Describe your product in 3 words.

Intelligent. Internet. Connectivity.

How did you come up with the idea for this product?

We were building a connected lighting product and saw a lot of other entrepreneurs around us who were trying to connect physical products to the internet and struggling to do so because of all of the technical challenges. So we built a little chip inside our lighting product that connected it to the internet and turned around and said: is this useful? Would you buy this? All the other entrepreneurs said, “Yeah this is super useful, I would love to have something like that. So as a result we took that chip and turned it into a development kit that people can use to build prototypes of IoT products and eventually scale.

What makes your product special?

By far it’s ease of use. Our customers can get a product online in minutes. If you use anything else, it is likely it will take you hours, days, weeks or months to get your product online. Not only is it easy to use, but it is easy to use while keeping your product secure and reliable.

What has been the best part of your startup experience?

Developing people. I like to hire great people. I love to see them grow and develop into something more by coming into a startup and taking on big problems and tackling those successfully, growing up as a result.
