“IoT is poised to disrupt entire business models and industries, but companies looking to bring innovative new IoT technologies to market face a number of complex challenges,” said Aiden Mitchell, Arrow’s VP of semiconductor marketing.

“As a top technology solutions provider, Arrow is excited to collaborate with Skookum on this boot camp to help our customers stay ahead of the innovation curve and profit from the tremendous opportunities IoT presents.”

Arrow said its Innovation Launch Pads are designed to help participants move from ideation to creation, leaving them with a tangible proof-of-concept, prototype, demonstration or business plan for IoT technology after five days.

Launch Pad participants will have access to Arrow design engineers and Skookum’s team of developers, hardware hackers and product designers as they move through a focused experimentation process, Arrow said.,

“Skookum’s proven model empowers companies to embrace the innovation process,” said Josh Oakhurst, Skookum’s chief strategy officer.

“We give companies a chance to compress months of experimentation and ideation into one short, intensely productive week.”
