Shout out to all Innovators & Entrepreneurs: Internet of Things is here, and you have the chance to get in at the ground floor.

Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague are already covered in a network that enables things to come online. And by July the entire country will be covered. What does this mean for your startup? What opportunities does it bring for you? Join us to find the why, what, how of the IoT movement.

Our speakers are two pioneers in this space:

Jonathan Carter ( is the initiator of the Amsterdam Internet of Things meetup (~2800 members), mentor at Startup Bootcamp, and co-founder of Glimworm Beacons (the first Dutch mass producer of iBeacon compatible sensors.)

Joahn Stokking ( is the Tech Lead at The Things Network, the first iot network that covers the entire of Amsterdam. He and Winke, just raised €[masked] on Kickstarter to crowdsource a global open and independent Internet Of Things network.

Johan will guide you through the steps to take as a developer or maker to connect an internet of things device to The Things Network. Expect a practical approach, including examples and limitations and things to consider when designing a solution. Plus he will share a bit of his experience on Kickstarter and where are they now with THN.

The event is made possible by WeWork Metropol, an amazing co-working space in the heart of Amsterdam. This is their second location in Amsterdam, so make sure you come at the right one.
