What’s Hot, What’s Not

Does it make sense to invest in the Industrial IoT market segment?

November 18, 2020 @ 4:00 pm 5:00 pm PST

WCA 21st Annual What’s Hot, What’s Not VC & M&A Panel.

The Wireless Communications Alliance invites you to get together with Silicon Valley VC’s and M&A professionals why they are placing their bets in the market segment of Industrial IoT – or not.

In 2017 the forecast predicted that IoT spending will grow at double-digit numbers until at least 2020. 

By 2021, more than 50% of spending on IoT projects will be for software and services.

Yet, specific industries, and within these industries, specific IoT use cases, clearly stick out. It probably won’t come as a surprise that the Industrial IoT (IIoT) leads the way.

Manufacturing operations, freight monitoring, smart grid, smart home, telematics (insurance), remote health monitoring and digital signage and other IoT retail use cases are among the IoT use cases where spending remains high or increases in the next years.

At our 21st annual CenterStage VC Panel, our investor panelists will enlighten us with innovative start-ups that fuel such industry’s growth, where their investments are going and not going, and what paradigm shifting trends and business opportunities they are projecting for 2021 and beyond.
