Wavelite wins CES 2018 Eureka Park Climate Change Innovator Award

By Claudia Torregrosa

Our portfolio company Wavelite was awarded the prestigious CES Eureka Park Climate Change Innovator Award today!

Ahmed M. Abdelsalam, Charlotte Savage, Bahar Partov and Pengyu Zhang are the Wavelite team members who travelled to CES and received the prize on January 12.

 

The award highlights the leadership and innovation of consumer technology startups in combating climate change.

“Our focus is to reduce power consumption in healthcare, smart cities, agriculture, and many other industries, allowing for a more sustainable ecosystem.” Co-founder Charlotte Savage explains.

Wavelite is a software- and hardware-based connectivity platform that allows sensor data to ride existing signals and reflect them to their destination. This results in reduced power consumption for wireless sensors, causing their lifetime to dramatically increase and therefore minimizing the carbon footprint of IoT devices.

There are numerous applications for Wavelite’s technology.

 

This is not the first prize won by the team: in July 2017, the startup was awarded the $100,000 investment prize from FIA Smart Cities.

Congratulations to the whole team!
