Wearable IoT World Labs is the world’s first accelerator focused on the Internet of Things, wearables, and emerging‐technology markets. Our 15‐week program provides promising entrepreneurs the tools, technology, network access, mentorship, and investment opportunities needed to take products and innovations to market. Since our inception, we've worked with 106 companies wanting to build successful companies in the IoT and wearables markets. WIoTW Labs boasts a 90% funding rate, with more than $105 million in outside investment. Of 12 crowdfunding campaigns conducted by startups enrolled in the program, all successfully met their targets, raising more than $6 million. In addition to our San Francisco Lab, we recently announced two new IoT Superhighway Labs in Hong Kong and Shenzhen, China that are focused on driving innovation and entrepreneurship.
Defining communications broadly to include digital, content marketing, thought leadership as well as traditional PR, The Hoffman Agency knows how to differentiate brands and deliver air cover for sales. With a heritage in the technology sector, the firm's work today cuts across a range of industries. While campaigns vary by client and industry, all share one theme: the creation of content that reflects the tenets of storytelling. This means developing narratives that prompt journalists to write and target audiences to read - a far cry from the "corporate speak" that satisfies internal stakeholders. Toward this end, the firm conducts storytelling workshops for internal communicators, executives and employees. For clients with global needs, the company operates in Asia Pacific, Europe and the United States. Unlike traditional agencies handicapped by their silo structure, The Hoffman Agency applies a collaborative approach to implementing multi-country campaigns. This leverage of content and thinking across geographies ultimately generates better results.
