L-SPARK, a leading Canadian tech accelerator, was selected by TELUS, BlackBerry and Solace to accelerate Canadian startups by creating real life PoCs that leverage this platform to enhance the security features of their products in their respective markets.

"The Secure IoT Accelerator truly showcases the innovation capabilities of Canadian companies," says Leo Lax, Executive Managing Director at L-SPARK. "The four companies, that participated in the accelerator, are in diverse vertical markets and have provided, in just four months, real use cases that demonstrate the value of the Secure IoT devkit."

Four companies were selected to participate in the L-SPARK Secure IoT Accelerator Program earlier this year and were provided with a development kit that included the IoT Software Stack. The companies have since created demonstrations for the market to illustrate how their IoT solutions are now secure by design throughout their lifecycle, resulting in a sustainable IoT environment that is designed for end-to-end security while addressing supply-chain security vulnerabilities.

“Solace is excited to see the L-SPARK accelerator come to life through the vision and hard work of the four Canadian companies selected to be part of the program,” said Paul Fitzpatrick, chief business development officer, Solace. “It’s great to see our event distribution capabilities combined with other key technologies to enable innovative IoT solutions for the healthcare and transportation sectors, and in critical areas like device lifecycle management and infrastructure monitoring where IoT is truly changing the game.”
