The Swedish Alliance for IoT Entrepreneurs (SMSE) has welcomed four new members: NarrativeNgenicTinitell and EWA Solutions. The latest expansion brings SMSE to 48 members and 14 partners and indicates a growing and fully-functioning IoT ecosystem in Sweden.

“Sweden has become a hotbed for IoT across industries and our alliance fuel that development,” said Magnus Melander, the founder of SMSE. “SMSE makes it easy to navigate in the Swedish IoT eco-system which is reflected in increasing interest, visits and partnerships from key international IoT players and media.”

Among the messages promoted by SMSE are that Data is the gold of IoT, Service Enablement is key to a prospering Internet of Things industry, and Specialisation is needed in the increasingly international and competitive IoT market.

The Swedish Mobile Awards 2015 introduced a third IoT category for Enterprise of the Year and the nominees RiksbyggenAssa AbloyScania and SKF are all examples of use of IoT to improve efficiency, security and sustainability.

Hardware is a key part of IoT and during the year we have two new important initiatives established in Stockholm to address hardware challenges and opportunities in Sweden: the hardware hub THINGS and the STHLMHW meet-up group.
