Even today, many companies are too often innovating on the basis of the push technology model, without having taken into account market needs or having addressed the real issues encountered by their staff.
In contrast, at IoT Valley we are convinced that for every business-related problem, there exists a startup solution, and that it is in working hand in hand with the staff in the field that sustainable innovation can be generated.
It is for this reason that we have organised more than 20 Amazement Workshops with our partners. During this 3 to 4-month support phase, our project managers, backed up a delegation comprised of IoT Valley staff and startup CEOs, work alongside the employees of a company to identify the hurdles that they encounter in going about their work, and propose solutions for deployment.
It is interesting to see how with a little skill, coupled with data intelligence, operational solutions can be identified, saving our teams valuable time

IoT Valley's role was to give us time to ask ourselves questions, with a view to identifying all of our problems, in black and white, to reference them and reflect on possible solutions
