IoT Launch Draws Closer

Posted: Updated:
FISHERS -

Ten weeks and six days; that's the exact amount of time remaining before the Internet of Things Lab in Fishers will officially open its doors March 21.

The first of its kind in the state, the goal of the nearly 25,000 square-foot lab is to give IoT companies and innovators a space to collaborate.
Launch Fishers founder John Wechsler says the lab will also help businesses find solutions through the lab’s four core components: ideation, cloud data, edge software and development.

“This is the first IoT Lab in the state of Indiana,” said Launch Fishers founder John Wechsler. “Our hope is that we can connect a multitude of these across the state. Whether it is commercial, municipal or university partners, we really see a bright future for IoT in the state of Indiana.”

According to Forbes, the Internet of Things market will reach $267 billion by 2020. And Indiana is poised to take advantage of what many of state's tech sector leaders call its most aggressive move yet in another significant step forward in its quest to become a leader in innovation
