THINGS eBazaar™ 
Smart Sensors

Event Partner: WSI by Sigma Connectivity

IoT enables the physical world to be connected to Internet where most people and organizations already are. It kicked-off yet another digital transformation likely bringing even more massive change than the previous one did. Over the last ten years or so IoT has developed from complete end-to-end solutions into systems of independent "components" like sensors and actuators, communication, platforms, analytics, AI, robots, etc. in a similar way as IT once developed. 

A rapidly developing sub-industry of IoT deals with sensors and actuators, which makes it important to design IoT solutions to work with different and more or less specialized sensors over time.
In this eBazaar™ we will listen to a handful of THINGS members who specialize on different types of sensors. 

We are proud to have WSI by Sigma Connectivity as our Event Partner since they have immense experience of selecting and integrating sensors in their development projects. 

Confirmed speakers:

  • WSI, Joakim Sandström
  • Celsicom, Stefan Carlsson, CEO and Co-founder
  • AKKR8, Ulf Seijmer, Chief Innovation Officer
  • Sencept, Iman Vakili, CEO & Founder
  • Zero Parallax, Vygantas Kirejevas, CEO & Co-founder

    THINGS invented the eBazaar™ online event to help their "corporate-ready" startup members reach relevant customers, partners, investors, analysts and media globally. For the established companies the THINGS eBazaar™ provides a great way to continue their efforts to find new solutions to problems from relevant and "corporate-ready" smaller companies, while actively taking responsibility for helping fantastic smaller companies - the children of our industries - develop and prosper. 

    "We have been incredibly well looked after in our 3 years at Things - a fantastic team and a fantastic community".
    Matt Whelan, Head of New Technology Development, OCTO Ocado

    An eBazaar™ has up to six selected THINGS members presenting their company and offerings to typically 50-80 relevant established companies. Each presentation is 15 minutes including Q&A so an eBazaar™ session is around 1,5 very well spent hours. The eBazaar™ is free for anyone to attend but we will always give priority to members of THINGS Enterprise Circle. 

    Please contact Magnus Melander, or +46 70 230 72 51 for questions, feedback or proposals.

    Note: The eBazaar™ will be conducted in English and will be recorded. THINGS reserves the right to use the recording for promotional purposes i.e. uploading to our YouTube channel, THINGS - Innovation Growhouse. Zoom records only persons speaking during the event. As a participant, please write your first name so we can identify your attendance and please switch off your camera.
