How everything started
"Our IoT vertical was one of the first programs that Plug and Play started after our Retail and Fintech programs. In its early days, IoT contained everything from smart home devices, parking solutions, to wearables, which many have spun out to create our other vertical programs. Today, with the heavy emphasis on digitalization in the industrial sector, we have rebranded ourselves to Industry 4.0."
