Amir Haleem, CEO of Helium, Part 2: Creating Tech, Then Driving Adoption

Is it more difficult to create the tech or to get it adopted? We continue discussing with Amir his hopes for the internet of things and developing a sensing overlay on the world. We discuss what sparked him to want to create a web of connected devices in the first place and why building the technology is only part of the battle. It takes more than great tech to succeed – you also need people to accept and ultimately adopt your innovation. Acceptance and adoption begin with educating people about what the tech enables – how it can make people’s lives better – so that it can be unleashed in practice. Lee and Troy share some post-conversation thoughts.
