We Have Our Finalists for the LoRaWAN Startup Challenge

After receiving dozens of applications from start-ups around the world, Momenta Ventures is proud to announce the five finalists in the LoRaWAN Startup Challenge, recognizing the most-innovative early stage startups leveraging Low Power, Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) technologies, specifically LoRaWAN. The finalists will make their pitches at the LoRa Alliance Annual Members Meeting in Berlin on June 13, aiming for the top prize of $10,000 and many other perks. 

The Momenta Ventures team received 37 entries, from 19 different countries across six continents. We were deeply impressed with all applicants; it was a tough job to narrow it down and we’re confident many of those we did not choose will still become successful businesses.  

The finalists will pitch live at the LoRa Alliance Annual Members Meeting in Berlin on June 13 for a chance to win the $10,000 cash prize. Finalists also receive a one-year Adopter membership to the LoRa Alliance,  complimentary booth space at the event, and will be publicly announced by both Momenta and the LoRa Alliance. 

Even with the tough competition, these five finalists represent the best combination of team, product, market, and presentation. They are:
