The Connectory is a global network of innovation spaces, promoted by Bosch in partnership with innovation hubs, that aims to co-create and to drive the development of innovative solutions and new business models in different IoT areas.
The Connectory concept is based on 3 pillars:
The Curitiba Connectory is the first Connectory location in South America, and it has a partnership with Habitat Senai. The mission is to build a connected world, promoting connections and partnerships that will accelerate the innovation process and will generate an impact on the creation of innovative solutions between startups, companies, universities and the community.
The name Connectory is a combination of the words “connection” and “factory,” two central elements of Bosch’s vision for the future. It is a space where connections happen – among devices, people and ecosystems – as the world evolves through a digital transformation. The Connectory becomes a physical space, designed to connect and co-create around the topic of IoT for startups, universities or other corporations.
The Curitiba Connectory team is made up of dedicated people with a wide range of expertise and different backgrounds. What all of them have in common is the motivation to support our members to make their IoT development a success.
