The IoT Tribe Programme

IoT Tribe strengthens ties between start-ups, corporates and the broader global deeptech ecosystem. Our mission is to get start-ups to their first big enterprise sale and give our corporate partners access to the technologies that can fuel their businesses.

Founders are immersed in vibrant local and global manufacturing ecosystems and global business and investment networks from day one and supported by our outstanding mentors and technology partners.


Deadline Extended 11th Feb

“I would recommend IoT Tribe for any startup that wants to accelerate the development and go-to-market of their IoT product.  The IoT Tribe team are super-committed to helping their startups get access to the resources they need and to get in-front of the right people to help scale-up globally from day-one.”

Alex, MetisLabs

“Before IoT Tribe we had a team of 5, a prototype, a broad vision and some minor traction within the consumer market. Coming out of IoT Tribe we have a strong team of 10 backing up a solid business model in both the consumer and business sectors. We have confirmed pilots with industry-leading multinationals and a product 10x more advanced than when we began the program. A lot of this wouldn’t have been possible without the support and guidance offered by the amazing team at IoT Tribe!”

Leo, Tended

“I think the most important and great thing about the IoT Tribe is the fact that the first 3 months and the initial accelerator is just the beginning, IoT Tribe is a great network, people that really care and are always there to help. We really do feel that we are part of the Tribe and I think that it is the best accelerator ever!”

Alex, Proxigroup
