Just got off a conference call with the participants in what’s shaping up to be a great panel on the Internet of Things at Northeastern University’s EntreTech Forum series, Tuesday night in Waltham.
In addition to moi, the participants will be:
- old friend Chris Rezendes, my partner-in-crime with the IoT Meetup series and CEO of INEX Advisors, THE IoT strategy consultants
- Josh Siegel, who was one of the stars of the first IoT Meetup with his presentation on the MIT CloudThink car project! Josh is also founder of CarKnow.
- Richard Pietravalle, a principal at MITRE Corporation.
- Hans Scharler, co-founder of ioBridge, which creates gatesways that “make it easy for professionals and enthusiasts to monitor and control nearly anything via their smart phone or web app.”
I’ll provide an overview of the IoT for those who aren’t familiar with it, and the other panelists will give an insider’s perspective on the entrepreneurial opportunities for both old and new companies created by the IoT.
The EntreTech Forum consists of moderated monthly panel discussions on emerging academic research and the commercialization of this technology. It was designed for those interested in technology innovation and marketing collaboration and networking with fellow entrepreneurs, business and government executives, investors, and technology researchers.
Registration costs $25, reduced to $10 for students and active military. The event begins at 6:30 with networking and snacks, and will be held at the Foley Hoag’s Emerging Enterprise Center at the Bay Colony Corporate Center, 1000 Winter Street, Suite 4000 (North Entrance), in Waltham.
See you there!
