The last time we wrote about the Internet of Things company Undagrid, it had just landed investments by Innovation Industries and Mainport Innovation Fund. “Multiple millions of euros” have been invested in Undagrid to date, although the company based at Schiphol Airport would not specify a precise amount. Undagrid has also landed (no pun intended) Schiphol early on as an important client. Since 2014 and this first rollout on Schiphol, Undagrid has expanded and are providing their smart sensor system to eleven airports worldwide.
This week, we spoke with Lennart Schroer, marketer, and co-founder of EIT Digital Challenge 2014 winner Undagrid, in context to the upcoming EIT Digital Challenge of 2017. We will discuss its latest state of affairs, their progress, and what kind of impact the EIT Digital Challenge had on the company.
