With its expertise in the field of connected objects, carried by the aura of iconic startups (Intensens, Axible Technologies, Connit, SigFox, etc) and international ambition, its specialization is evident.

Through this proof of success, startup has developed its activity with the help of experts SigFox, accelerator IOT Valley and connections made with a great partner group SNCF. SigFox has recently announced the launch of a foundation, a project that will be led by Marion Moreau.

Beyond the name change, IOT Valley also announces the launch of Connected Camp, modeled after the IT support services in Shoreditch, its accelerator startup specializing in the connected devices industry, in partnership with the inevitable SigFox and major regional industry groups. The project was born following the finding that it became necessary to connect startups and large companies, created to meet the needs and issues related to the Internet of Things.
