What is the IoT Hotlist?
The Internet of Things is developing at a rapid pace. Developing just as rapidly is the ecosystem of hardware manufacturers, network and platform operators, analytics specialists, and service providers.
As part of our regular project responsibilities at LSP Digital, we routinely monitor the IoT market, but then of course only convey these findings with individual clients. So that we can share our insights about exciting market developments with a wider circle, we are launching "Iot Hotlist Germany" for the first time in 2018.
From a list of nearly 200 emerging companies with a focus on IoT and located in Germany, our IoT practice has compiled a shortlist of particularly noteworthy companies and concepts across all market sectors. True startups, joint ventures, and spin-offs were taken into consideration; however, incubators and the activities of IoT units from major corporations were not. With all of the companies from the shortlist, personal interviews - almost always directly with the founders and managing directors - were then conducated. In this way, we became thoroughly acquainted with these companies and were able to put their business models, technologies, and perspectives to the test.
In the end, five companies made such an impression on us that their names were chosen to appear in the first edition of the IoT Hotlist.
Without further ado, here they are!
