Technologies based on the Internet of Things are becoming an integral part of our lives. All implemented technologies help to more efficiently manage all available resources and optimize their use.
Considering that in recent years the topic of climate change has been raised more and more and more and more people, it is now more important than ever that projects arise that are aimed at cleaning up the environment through innovations, products, and alternative energy solutions. As the population of Asia (and the world) is growing and has historically lagged compared to other regions, such startups in the region must gain recognition. It is important to consider that startups based on the Internet of Things are becoming popular. They help to more efficiently manage all available resources and optimize their use.
Why IoT Sustainable Startups With 4.6 billion people in Asia, of whom 1.8 billion lack access to safe drinking water and 940 million lack access to electricity, the development of sustainable startups should open up opportunities for a cleaner future.
