ODI Leeds works with DataCity on IoT UK Boost

We're really pleased to be working on the #IoTUK Boost project over the next few months.

The timeline is:

IoT Boost Leeds

Working with DataCity Leeds and the Digital Catapult Centre Yorkshire we're boosting the Internet of Things (IoT) across the Leeds City Region and Yorkshire.

Over the coming months our events will connect micro & small businesses with people & organisations who have problems that IoT might solve.

Everything builds up to our main event at ODILeeds on the 11th and 12th of February where we hope you will all join us to build new stuff together.

Learn more by signing up to our launch event in Leeds, our launch event in Bradford, or both. There will be a free lunch!!

If you've got a problem or a product you'd like to share please find Tom Forth on twitter or send us an email and we'll get you involved.

All the best ODI Leeds.

The following projects are already confirmed to give 5-minute introductions.

They're interested in how IoT might help them solve challenges and increase their reach. Can you help?
