Gecko has been developed by Connovate Technology in Bangaluru, founded in January this year by four professionals, Bahubali Shete, Kiran Kumar, Rajeev M and S Varadarajan.
Pilot manufacturing had begun in a plant in China. These past few weeks have been really exciting. We have orders from 70 countries. Around 35-40 resellers around the world are in talks with us to market Gecko. Several big VC and industry names are keen to fund us. But more than money, we are interested in a strategic partner that can help us build our market.
“As a product design company we started off with a clear focus on Internet of Things. Gecko tag is an enabler for Internet of things. Gecko tag was a result of brainstorming sessions we had prior to starting the business itself.” As stated by the co-founder, Bahubali Shete.
The company received crowd funding raising over $135,000 from the mere target of $50,000 including Steve Wozniac.
