What was IoT Engine?

IoT Engine was a pre-accelerator programme based in the Barnsley DMC02 MakerLab. It provided at least 12 hours of support for businesses with aspects of the Internet of Things (IoT) and associated technology.

The programme was fully funded by ERDF, Capital Enterprise, Barnsley Council, and Connexin – an innovative and disruptive technology company specialising in building and operating award-winning Smart City Infrastructure to support the Internet of Things.

The programme provided support through 1:1 mentoring, hands-on validation and proof-of-concept support, workshops, and networking events with customers, suppliers and thought leaders.

The programme aimed to validate business concept(s), build an early version of a product, and generate sales so that participants could establish a new company, expand their existing company, or introduce a new product or service to their business.
