Pharmaceutical companies aren’t probably the first thing that comes to mind when you think about IoT technologies. For most people, what pops up when they hear about IoT is the image of a smart home.

It was around 2013 when Koombea was hired by Samsung to help develop an interface that would allow users to connect their mobile devices to their TVs.

Cities are without a doubt one of the most revolutionary achievements of recent human history. While the first civilizations started as hunters and gatherers who lived as nomads from one place to another, we now live in densely populated cities that rely heavily on technology and infrastructure. Their rapid growth has lifted many out of poverty…

Despite the ongoing economic and political turmoil, FinTech companies saw an impressive $135.7 billion global investment in 2019. The Americas alone had investments for $64.2 billion; this comes as no surprise, given the U.S. is the global leader in terms of FinTech. These numbers show one thing: FinTech is treading hard.  The financial industry has been…
