We were expecting a lot when visited the IFA 2019 in Berlin as it is one of the trade shows to be when it comes to new IoT devices. We were quite excited when we passed the CHIPOLO booth where Martin [CHIPOLO’s Head of Sales] introduced us to their latest chip finder. It did not take long until we were fully fond of not only of the item finder itself but also of the design and the way CHIPOLO was doing their business.
Months later, I am sitting in Trbovlje [Slovenia] with Jure, CHIPOLO’s CTO, discussing how to bring the new CHIPOLO tracker together with the simHERO connectivity. Our first impression at IFA was right – great discussions at relaxing but professional atmosphere, a start-up feeling with highly talented people. The story goes back when 6 friends started a Kickstarter campaign in 2013 which turned to an international and leading company, selling their item finder in over 200 countries worldwide. In June 2020, we finally concluded that both companies will enter a business partnership and we are happy to welcome CHIPOLO and its entire staff to the simHERO family. We are looking forward to a successful business relationship in the upcoming years and decades.
