Startups in the city

This June I enjoyed guest judging at the Spectrum Summer Startup competition with Kevin Browne of Software Hamilton and Robyn Larsen of Robynlarsen.ca and Normative.

Meeting 20+ startup teams in in rapid succession was quite exhilarating!  One of my favourites (and the eventual competition winner) was “Clear Roots” a startup focused on gardening inside the home.  Their product takes inspiration from the popular urban ecology movement and IoT companies like Nest.

At Weever Apps our own “internet of things” protocol, IoTA, continues to grow. We recently leveraged IoTA to deploy a web app which connects to and instructs a popular home device.  I look forward to sharing this project later in the year.
