The rise in consumer demand for smart products is driving new opportunities not only for Internet of Things companies, but for investment and venture capital groups as well. In April, NetworkWorld published a list of 10 IoT companies that are nabbing funding from major investment companies. Seebo garnered a spot in the list, which highlighted the company’s history and unique offerings for product manufacturers looking to make smart connected products.
The article covered Seebo’s product development tools and in-market, over-the-air updating capabilities. It did not mention Seebo’s new IoT Creator, launched in May, which allows any product team to ideate smart product features, estimate hardware costs, and connect with a larger IoT ecosystem, including a pool of app developers.
NetworkWorld has been following updates in the Internet of Things closely in the last couple of years. Billing itself as the leading providers of intelligence and information for IT and Network Executive, the site is well versed in the growing smart product industry. The site made mention of Verizon's latest IoT report and data from Venture Scanner, a research firm which helps its clients "identify startups and trends". Both pointed to Enterprise IoT companies such as Seebo as huge areas of investment, as they provide "answers today to known problems that traditional frameworks [aren't] solving.”
