Student Internet of Things Competition
Student teams working on the Big Internet of Things Competition between ARM and UCL will pitch their proof of concept technologies and business plans to a team of experts from industry and academia on 29th January at IdeaLondon in Shoreditch. The IdeaLondon Centre was recently opened by the Prime Minister David Cameron and is the first of its kind in Tech City which aims to nurture and grow both new and existing early-stage start-ups in the area. The partnership behind the centre - the Innovation and Digital Enterprise Alliance (IDEA) - is a collaboration between Cisco, DC Thomson and UCL and will support the growth of rapidly expanding digital, tech and media start-ups in and around Tech City in London's Shoreditch. IDEALondon provides bespoke support, tailored to individual start-ups, with mentoring and a strategic acceleration programme. It will initially house around fifteen companies and around one hundred entrepreneurs and staff.
