About the IoT Lab: A hands-on masterclass and workshop

After a meet-and-greet in a bar on the Friday evening to get to know your fellow teammates, the two days of intensive problem-solving and prototyping start with coffee and inspiration on the Saturday morning. The IoT Lab team will go over the schedule, representatives from Claro Partners will share their IoT planning tool and then the teams will dive into brainstorming, designing and prototyping new IoT product and service concepts. Teams will finish the weekend with a well-defined service, product prototype and business model.
