IoT innovator teams up with design and manufacturing leader to help SME’s turn ideas into connected products in three months.

Pycom, an innovative Internet of Things (IoT) technology company, today announced a strategic partnership with Season Group, a leading Global Electronics Manufacturing Service (EMS) provider, to provide end-to-end development, integration and manufacturing services for aspiring small to medium size enterprises (SME) companies. Based in Hong Kong, Season Group has been dedicated to providing disruptive organisations complete customized manufacturing and engineering services for over forty years.

Pycom is partnering with Season Group to ease one of the toughest parts of the technology development journey – the manufacturing process. “This is the main reason many projects never make it to market,” says Fred de Haro, Pycom CEO and co-Founder. “With the help of Season Group, we are thrilled to offer our customers a seamless process through manufacturing hurdles, making it possible to go from initial idea to final product in as little as three months.”

Getting an idea to market before anyone else, and in many cases before running out of cash,” says de Haro. “Most entrepreneurs can only afford to keep projects going for a few months before requiring significant funding, making it difficult for SME’s to fund large production volumes, and finding the right manufacturing partner can be a long process and full of risk.”
