STAC exists to support start-ups developing smart things.
This year, an estimated 46 billion connected devices worldwide enable the use of data in industry, energy, cities and the medical sector. By 2030, the Internet of Things (IoT) market is forecast to be worth $1.5 trillion.
The market is growing rapidly and our goal is to help Scottish start-ups become key players in a connected world.
The Smart Things Accelerator Centre is a unique IOT tech accelerator dedicated to scaling start-ups to become sustainable, globally competitive companies.
