THINGS has become the epicenter for Swedish Industrial IoT. It’s not just a place for fraternizing, but a place where you meet people from startups and corporations with a genuine intention of doing business that unleashes the true potential of this tectonic shift we’re going through as everything becomes connected and autonomously smart

Jon LindénFounder & CEOEkkono

Exxentric spent only a year at THINGS, but what an important year it was! At the time, we were only two people working full time for the company. With limited financial resources, cost was an important factor in the choice of office space. Already growing fast, we were eagerly searching for both talent and relevant new business contacts. THINGS luckily gave access to both, at an affordable membership fee.”
