A wide range of parties will benefit greatly

  • Sensor owners
    Are able to monetize their data and turn a sunk cost into a potential money maker and at least the opportunity to recoup some of their investments in IoT sensors.
  • Network operators
    Gain scale and speed in the adoption of their network as connected telcos can present a win-back to their enterprise accounts, a clear USP.
  • Sensor manufacturers
    Can stop the "race to the bottom” for production and pull resources and capital out of manufacturing and allocate these to profitable SaaS offerings.
  • Smart city initiatives
    Can limit the upfront cost of populating the town with sufficient sensors and turn the expense into an investment with a 2-3 year payback period and a continuous income stream after that.
  • Agricultural sector
    In the Agricultural sector in Belgium today, 10% of farmers are "techie". They deploy sensors include for wind, temperature, barometric pressure, humidity, PH level in the soil. The platform will provide the possibility to recoup some of this cost.
  • Academics
    Can get access to thousands of sensors and can buy data directly and more cheap on the marketplace, cutting out established data providers.
