WHAT IS THE PROGRAM ABOUT?

A new way of communicating with “things” is on. Narrowband IoT is about managing small amounts of data, over long periods, in hard-to-reach places. It can connect many more devices to the Internet of Things and make many new applications a reality.

The WARP NB-IoT Program by hub:raum Kraków and Deutsche Telekom provides an industry ecosystem which enables startups, B2B partners and customers to develop NB-IoT applications and solutions at an early stage.

The program gives a great opportunity to join the Deutsche Telekom fast-track NB-IoT network roll-out in 8 European countries: Austria, Croatia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and the Netherlands.

If you have an IoT startup and want to become a NarrowBand IoT pioneer, then apply to develop your solution with hub:raum and go-to-market together with Deutsche Telekom.


WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR

The program aims at accelerating European IoT startups and growing companies with products or working prototypes across different industries.

SMART CITIES (street lighting, parking, waste management, metering);
SMART TRACKING (assets, people, pets, bicycles);
SMART INDUSTRIES (agriculture, construction equipment, industrial machinery);
SMART HEALTH;
SMART PROPERTY.

Those are just examples. If you have the rocket tracking or tunnel digging monitoring - feel free to surprise us!

Apply now! The deadline for the application is until July 17th 2017.
