Silicon Cape
26 Mar 2017

Enter your solution into the 2017 Mind2Machine Awards to claim your place among Africa’s top M2M developers – as well as winning some excellent prizes, and well-deserved press coverage of your company and solution.

The inaugural Mind2Machine Awards in 2015 set the benchmark for M2M innovation and creation challenges in South Africa. Now, as we enter into our second year, the 2017 event is bigger, better, and bolder, incorporating both the awards component and a new IoT-focused conference – promoting knowledge and best practice sharing for developers and buyers in the connected infrastructure and Internet of Things space.

For the Mind2Machine Awards 2017, we are looking for exciting solutions that use M2M applications and technology to solve business problems. In addition, the awards receive considerable press interest and coverage, an extra bonus for participants, helping them establish their names and reputations in this competitive space. There are several category titles up-for-grabs, in which our panel of judges will choose:

The Best Commercial M2M Solution: An existing solution, in the market place and commercially viable

The Most Disruptive M2M Solution: An existing solution bringing rapid disruption or change in its environment, or one which has the potential to revolutionise industries

Best Enterprise Development App: The best app developed by an ED beneficiary, or developer that has gone through an incubation programme

Innovative Hardware in IoT: A M2M hardware solution, originating from an established business or organisation

Wildcard: A machine-to-machine market-ready solution or idea that does not necessarily fit into any of the above categories, or serve a specific purpose or intention. It must however be aimed at corporate use to streamline production efficiencies and generate increased income.

All entrants will have the opportunity to be trained on the MTN M2M platform, and given access to free software and hardware during the conception phase of the competition. There is an exciting bouquet of prizes up-for-grabs, as well as the resultant press coverage and media interest that comes hand-in-hand with an event of this magnitude.

Deadline: 5 May 2017
