R/GA Ventures is pleased to announce the companies that will participate in its first ever UK-based venture program, the R/GA IoT Venture Studio UK. The companies include a diverse mix of the next generation of entrepreneurs and startups that are using Internet of Things technology to transform everything from food waste to board games. Launched in collaboration with Innovate UK, the UK Government’s innovation agency, the program officially starts today and is to be housed at R/GA London’s new connected headquarters.
This program will build on the innovative format of the previous R/GA Venture Programs by focusing on both growth-stage and early-stage companies and immediate business opportunities designed to create a path to category leadership and scale. As with all R/GA Ventures programs, R/GA will provide the selected startups with direct access to its award-winning business transformation, strategic marketing, branding, design and technology services, as well as access to its network of clients, industry partners, global brand leaders, mentors and investors.
Up to ten companies from around the world will be selected to participate in the program. These companies will be a mix of early-stage and growth-stage startups that not only understand the technology but also the cultural and business environment in which these services must come to life.
