Edinburgh-based Beringar is one of nine companies to graduate from the R/GA Ventures IoT incubator, announcing plans to raise around £1.2 million in seed funding to meet growing demand.
The IoT Venture Studio incubator, created in partnership with Innovate UK, focuses on startups using IoT technology and connected spaces to create disruptive products and services. Companies participating in the program were given access to business transformation, strategic marketing, branding, design and technology services, as well as R/GA’s network of clients, industry partners, global brand leaders, mentors and investors.

According to Sorsa-Leslie, the company is now actively looking for seed funding of around £1.2m to “get the product into the market quickly and meet the demand that we have. [There are] listed property companies that are really eager to get their hands on our solution.”
