What You Will Learn:
NCRIoT, originally the “Raleigh Internet of Things,” was formed as a medium to help people understand what IoT is and how it’s changing business. It quickly transformed into a networking, convening, and educational resource for the area, because success in IoT requires a lot more than wireless alone. The top minds in IoT had nowhere else to turn before NCRIoT was forged. Now, NCRIoT offers a twelve-week program to helps companies and individuals across the country take their IoT products to market.
NCRIoT also does “pitchfest,” which is like Shark Tank for IoT providers. Their program is designed to take an IoT product through the finish line. They help a lot of startups in the early-stage and work to develop their prototypes. But they also connect them with MSPs that have a managed service the startup can leverage. NCRIoT has a fee-for-service model for some of the work they do, but the large majority of it is relationship-based.
