element14 has partnered with Startupbootcamp IoT | Connected Devices, a new dedicated Internet of Things (IoT) accelerator program from industry-focused accelerators' global network Startupbootcamp. Through this partnership, the distributor will provide support to IoT and hardware startups from across the world.

The accelerator program, which launched on 2 March 2016, is seeking applications from startups across the world with a focus on innovation in consumer or industrial IoT, for example, wearables, the connected home, industrial IoT and smart retail.

Ten startups will be selected to engage in an intensive three-month program starting in September 2016, with each one receiving €15,000 and guidance and support from mentors, partners and investors, including element14.

The program will take place in a brand new, 70,000 sq ft fast prototyping lab at Cocoon Networks in London.

As a corporate partner, element14 will play an integral role in supporting the startups in taking their initial concepts through to a finished product, in an aggressive three-month development process.
