The Internet of Things (IoT) has provided the world with technology that enables the communication of data over a network without requiring any human interaction. For example, in a smart home you can control things like the lighting, thermostat, and security systems using your smartphone or a smart speaker. And now Dutch space startup, Hiber, has huge plans to expand IoT connectivity to the 90% of the world that currently lacks a network.
Based out of Amsterdam, the IoT space startup aims to help with tackling climate change, growing crops efficiently, managing natural resources better, and protecting wild animals. Hiber had a successful 2018, as the company triumphantly launched 2 nanosatellites and also got named as Amazon Web Services Commercial Startup Launch of 2018. Recently Silicon Canals spoke to Coen Janssen, co-founder and Director of Business Intelligence at the fast-growing Dutch NewSpace tech startup.
