IoT Launch Draws CloserPosted: Updated:
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.
