The IoT Innovation Challenge is a call to action for groundbreaking IoT solutions. We are looking for inventors and technicians, engineers and entrepreneurs who are passionate about technology and keen to develop their own Minimum Viable Product (MVP) around a set of problem statements from industry leaders. The best MVPs will bring together hardware and software/firmware, and when possible, leverage on AI and edge inferencing.

10 semi-finalists, who will be determined by a panel of judges, will receive a prototyping fund. Subsequently, 6 finalists will receive a product development fund.
