Christopher Meyer
RIoT, Director of Partnerships

Suppose you've been reading the news and were successfully able to get past the coverage of Joe Biden's golf game. You might have noticed some concerning indicators that particular electronics components are taking a long time to ship, 40-60 weeks in some cases. Auto manufacturers are shutting down their assembly lines due to a lack of essential parts. And that Peloton you just ordered? It's going to take over eight weeks to arrive. What is going on?
It turns out there is quite a bit happening.

Join Brett Babel of Luscombe Rocky Mountain as we dig into what's occurring in the global supply chain for electronics and pinpoint which components are becoming difficult to source and why.

The smart home, smart building, and smart city promise of increased efficiency, screenless interactions, and valuable insight into utilization is only just being realized.

For entrepreneurs and service providers, the orchestration of devices has been expensive and demanded deep technical knowledge. Today, tools are emerging to show this is no longer the case.

Join Jay Lent as he articulates how entrepreneurs and corporations, even those without direct IoT industry experience, can enter the market.
