CENGN attends the Internet of Things Ottawa Meetup

Published: June 7th, 2017

CENGN attended the Internet of Things Ottawa Meetup last night at the Spiria office in Hull!

As IoT industry becomes bigger and bigger, manufacturing, product validation, and licensing are all issues that small and medium enterprises (SMEs) need to think about. This IoT Ottawa Meetup focused on the essential skills required by SMEs looking to commercialize their solutions and products.

The event featured presentations by Stewart Dibbs and Richard Tomkins from PiXCL Automation Technologies who presented an overview of their Decaf USB Sensor/Control/Display product range, PiXCL’s Kickstarter campaign launch status, and a summary of the patent and IP licensing issues that have been examined, including costs.

CENGN’s Esha Abrol, Business Development Manager, networked with IoT industry members over pizza and beer, and gave a short but sweet talk about who CENGN is, and what it can provide to SMEs and start-ups looking to commercialize their products.
