The companies of R/GA Ventures’ first ever UK-based venture program, the R/GA IoT Venture Studio UK, 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 began February 6th 2017, housed at R/GA London’s new connected headquarters.
This program built upon the innovative format of the previous R/GA Ventures 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 provided 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.
The program concluded on May 4th 2017 with an invite-only demo event, at which each startup presented to industry leaders, partners and customers from the technology and innovation community.
