Presentation Summary

There are several different business models IoT start-ups can adopt when they come to market.
Each offers its own advantages and disadvantages, and the best option depends on which market the start-up is in, who its competitors are and the type of product or service it is offering.
However, building a successful start-up doesn't just depend on business model - the experience and execution capabilities also play a crucial part.
