We are passionate about building exceptional IoT companies.

We are entrepreneurs committed to the Internet of Things, and more broadly, an innovative progression to a cyber-physical world. We care about building great companies with really smart, honest, good people bringing great solutions to the market that people and organizations need and want. We believe in inclusion, diversity, and caring about the world beyond our doorstep.

We take what we do very seriously, but we love what we do. We all understand this is not a game, and we are here to deliver results. But we all also understand that this is an incredible, enjoyable, and rewarding journey. 

We help new entrepreneurs build products, teams and go to market strategies based on laser focus and ongoing assessment marked by extreme objectivity. We help assess markets and opportunities and develop execution plans for success. We operate at a higher clock speed and with intense discipline.

In the past, we have seen start-up incubators (co-working with some mentorship), and then start-up accelerators (more formal short programs with more mentorship and small equity investments) producing better results in terms of speed to market, chances of success, and valuation at funding than stand-alone start-ups, and understandably so. The Venture Studio model is an even more aggressive form of this, where the studio has a full team that has “been there, done that,” and brings that experience to selected entrepreneurs to help move them from idea to commercialization. The vertical IoT studios are a highly focused version of this, also adding domain expertise for what we believe is a truly winning formula.
