Technology Startup Wins Innovation of Things Award in Berlin: Condition-based Forecasts Convinced Six-member Jury.
Berlin ranks now alongside London and Paris as one of the startup capitals of Europe. One manifestation of this rapid climb was the Internet of Things World Europe held in Berlin last month.
Based on the enormous success of the Internet of Things World in San Francisco, the European sister event aims among other things to link the major players of the Internet of Things community with startups. In addition to the exchange of information and experience there was also the presentation of the winner of the Innovation Award of Things.
Berlin triumphs: From a total of 15 startups shortlisted for the prize, the condition-based forecasts by Cassantec AG from Berlin won the jury over.
– With so many interesting startups we are overjoyed that our solution triumphed, stated Cassantec CEO Moritz von Plate proudly.
