IEEE selects its N3XT™ Stars at Collision!
Last week, members of the IEEE Entrepreneurship staff and community attended Collision, in New Orleans, Louisiana. The conference has quickly become known as “America’s fastest growing tech conference” in the four years since its inaugural year. Our Judges Allan Tear, Sasha Hoffman, and Samantha Snabes interviewed 20 tech startups on the show floor for a chance to become an IEEE N3XT™ Star.
The IEEE N3XT™ Star program recognizes the best hard tech startups globally. Early-stage companies are selected by a distinguished panel of entrepreneurs and investors from the IEEE community, in acknowledgment of their progress and potential in bringing engineering-driven innovations to market in emerging areas of technology.
Last month at the LAUNCH Festival in San Francisco, California IEEE judges awarded the title of IEEE N3XT™ Star to Bounce Imaging, Droneseed, Elemental Machines, IAM Robotics, Krtkl, MCThings, and Zoora.
At Collision, the IEEE N3XT™ Star title was given to Cattleya Technosys, a product based IOT technology company in the business of electronics & video surveillance, and Aclima, a developer of environmental sensor networks. Both startups were selected based on the utility of their products, innovation, and alignment with IEEE’s core principles.
IEEE looks forward to attending Collision next year in 2018. Congratulations to our IEEE N3XT™ Stars!
