We found the IoT Tribe accelerator program extremely useful as it helped us grow in multiple aspects of our business. The intensive workshops gave us access to and guidance from experts. By far, the most special part of the program is our business coach and the multiple mentors whom we have formed lasting bonds with. Each are experts in their fields, providing us direction and new perspectives that helped us expand our knowledge.
