About Internet of Things Accelera...
The Internet of Things Accelerator Wales (IoTA Wales) is a national first. If you’re a small company with a big idea which could drive the evolution of IoT, the programme can bring the real investment, intensive training and invaluable contacts that can help you make Wales and the world a smarter place.
IoT will change the way we live, work and play. Devices talking to devices. Analysing and sharing information. Connected homes. Smarter cities. More efficient transport systems. Intelligent healthcare that can save lives.
From coal and steel to compound semiconductors and the Raspberry Pi, Wales has a past and present as a nation of creators and makers. Its future? The perfect place to drive IoT development through innovation, inspiration and production. A future we can build together.
A brainchild of Innovation Point, The Accelerator Network, Barclays Eagle Labs, Airbus Group Endeavr Wales (Endeavr), Inspire Wales and the Development Bank of Wales, the programme will see 10 promising companies receive a £50,000 cash injection in financial support for 10% equity, considerable in kind support including access to world-class training and mentoring in vital areas of IoT and business development, and use of a creative office space in the heart of Cardiff.
IoTA Wales applications are open to start ups from across the UK developing innovative IoT products or services in Wales (or companies willing to bring their projects to Wales). The programme will accelerate start ups driving IoT evolution in key areas such as cyber security, new energy systems, aerospace, advanced engineering, sensors, creative city wide networks and digital living. Applicants must be able to commit to a 12 week programme based in Cardiff’s city centre.
