Recommendations

Joshua Bartlett recommended SenseHome where Oleg is Co-Founder

As an International Trade Specialist at the U.S. Department of Commerce, I had the pleasure of accompanying Alexey Siluyanov, the CEO of SenseHome, on a three-week study tour of startup ecosystems across the United States.

Alexey conducted himself as a professional, and he effectively pitched his company to venture capitalists, accelerator and incubator program managers, and real estate developers. As with any startup, there is room to grow and refine, so I feel that the time spent in a U.S.-based program will help to take them to the next level.

Alexey has spoken to me about the composition of his team, and I am confident that this is a team of learners and doers, and they would highly benefit from U.S.-based incubator and accelerator programs. I have provided my phone number and email below if you have any questions or require any additional information.

Best regards,

Tanner Johnson recommended SenseHome where Oleg is Co-Founder

Alexey and his team have a potentially great IoT product for the property/utility/construction industry, due to its ease of installation and lower price, along with its potential integrated uses. They need help in identifying their target market in the U.S., and refining their product, marketing and pitch to go appeal to the appropriate part of the U.S. home IoT market. They will also need to distinguish themselves from well-known competitors like Nest if they want to find success in the United States.

I feel these are the types of subjects that can be effectively addressed through many acceleration programs, and potentially make SenseHome an excellent candidate for an appropriate accelerator program focused on IoT and/or hardware technologies.
