Four local startups pitched their products in front of a panel of Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) judges at a pitch competition hosted by RIoT at HQ Raleigh on Tuesday evening.

In the end, BruVue, a platform that provides real-time tracking of inventory and beer keg levels for bar managers, won first prize: a small industry membership with IIC.

More than 200 people packed into HQ Raleigh for the event, which showcased companies working in the Internet of Things (IoT) space, developing devices connected to the internet. The other startups included TrilliottAeva Labs and Proaxion.

The event’s media coverage, shared in WRAL TechWire by Chantal Allam, highlighted RIoT’s role in growing the IoT ecosystem in Raleigh and beyond:
