Smart Home Ecosystem

SMART HOME ECOSYSTEM

Launch Videos |  Partners  |  Updates  | Feedback from EntrepreneurCountry Forum 2016


The 15th EntrepreneurCountry Forum launched our Smart Home Ecosystem. EntrepreneurCountry Global has built Europe’s largest Smart Home Ecosystem with 20 partners so far from the worlds of communications, consumer electronics, devices, property rental and brokering and utilities whose customers total more than 500 million. This ecosystem will grow further.

We see Ecosystems as facilitators of future marketplaces. Ecosystems are like nature. EntrepreneurCountry Global sees its role as helping to organize the raw assets, people, companies, needs and offerings so that sustainable economics emerge and successful businesses prosper. It is precisely because the smart home as an ecosystem is a bit ambiguous that we are interested in it.There is still a fundamental way to shape the overall course of this future marketspace in a way that cannot be done in other industries such as music.

If you would like to participate in this Smart Home Ecosystem, as either a citizen, David or Goliath, to bring the future to the present, contact us on ecosystem@entrepreneurcountry.com

You can watch all of the sessions from the 15th EntrepreneurCountry Forum on our ECTV YouTube Channel, here:

Feedback from EntrepreneurCountry Forum 2016

I would like to take the opportunity to thank you very much for inviting me to your conference and provide me the platform to share a bit of the journey of RWE over the last few years. Having the possibility to openly and honestly share our challenges but also our ideas and ways to overcome these in though times was really energizing for me and I could also of feel the positive tension in the audience during my speech.

During the 10-15min we laughed together, created a level of understanding what is going on in a disrupted business like RWE and how we are working on with our head, hearts and hands jointly starting to change and re-create entrepreneurial spirit again within RWE.

I also experienced the first time the fact that via Twitter the audience is rapidly extended and goes quickly beyond the room you are in. Finally I also massively enjoyed all other speeches and learned a lot during this day - inspiring and in some cases it made me really think!
- Roland Hess - Global Lean Transformation Lead, RWE


Thank you for inviting me to this fabulous event, thank you so much for that. The quality of the speakers and the exhibitions were great.
- Jerome Chifflet - Innovation Manager, Orange Labs Research


Thank you for the event - it was a great crowd, amazing location, and you pulled things back together after the fire alarm admirably.
- Simon Hunt - CTO Home Gateway Security, Intel


Your EC team and the contributors produced a high quality event which was informative, inspirational and engaging (as probably was evident from my tweets and questions during the sessions!). Congratulations!
- Amitabh Apte - CTO / IS Director, RB


Thanks again for inviting me - I thought the event was excellent and great to see data at the heart of the discussion!
- Adrian Gregory - CEO, DataIQ


Congratulations on a thought provoking, exciting and crammed conference ! I really enjoyed the day and although there were a few talks which went over my head completely , there were others that resonated very strongly – especially Michael from London Advertising. Well done on managing to pull this off so successfully.
- Alice Avis MBE - 


As a sponsor of the ECG Forum last week many thanks to you and your team for organising such a great event. My team and I were particularly impressed with the venue as I have not visited the Royal Institute of Great Britain before. It worked very well for a business event and I will be looking to hire the venue in due course for a number of events that we plan to run.
- Paul Tarantino - Country Manager, UK&I and Middle East, MapR


it was an impressive speaker line up and audience!
- Andrew Isaac Thornton - Founder, Heart in Business Ltd


Thank you again for a wonderful day at the Entrepreneurial Country Forum. I was very impressed by your dedication to growing the business community.
- Dovile Kemezyte - Marketing Manager, Metis Partners


I do not believe that I have ever attended an event that was so packed full of incredible speakers, interesting content and the opportunity to network. The fire alarm in the morning just added to the whole day (more opportunities to network).
- Michelle Buchan - 


Thank you hugely for involving The Business Café in your event yesterday. We enjoyed it hugely and met some terrific people
- Penny Power OBE - Founder & CEO, The Business Cafe


Thanks for having me at your conference today. It was an interesting, diverse range of topics with some great speakers! loved Jeremy Waite and Mike Tobin.
