Explore our IoT Company Portfolio


Metr builds modern IoT infrastructure enabling connected use cases in the housing industry. Our vision is to democratize the use of IoT in the housing sector through affordable, open and interoperable systems.

Metr’s story is unique. As one of our primary ventures, the company was founded in November 2016. Before the end of the first month, Metr had already established communications with the largest housing association in Berlin. We subsequently worked closely with them to develop a relationship and understanding that would lead to a fully user-centered approach to product development. We expect Metr to sign off on a partnership deal within their first year, launching the first product before the end of 2017.

Connected pants assistr

Assistr researches and develops technical solutions for the medical, nursing and healthcare sectors to allow for an independent life of elderly people and people in need of care in their home environment.

Founder Jens Grudno launched Assistr in late 2016 hoping to find solutions that would assist the elderly and improve their quality of life. Assistr’s first product uses connected diapers to indicate the sanitary status of the patient and the perfect time for medical staff to assist them. This is done through a statistical evaluation of moisture zones inside the diapers. In the future, the smart incontinence diapers will be able to predetermine different diseases and statuses like dehydration, enabling a more comfortable and safer life for the elderly in the home.

NR-GEN’s mission is to provide digital infrastructures for the energy world of tomorrow. The future energy market will be decentral, renewable, digital and automated. Smart devices will choose their source of energy directly. NR-GEN is developing a digital marketplace for electricity transactions. It encompasses not only the provision of energy but also the flexibility of generation and consumption.

Due to the expected ubiquity of IoT-devices in the near future the opportunity for demand-side management, even for smaller devices, will become feasible. Blockchain technology and smart contracts enable the efficient handling of all these small transactions. Based on these technical foundations, NR-GEN provides a peer-to-peer platform facilitating the trading of energy at the device level.


Crypto is working on a new series of secure and affordable IoT chipsets with the ability to implement a trusted execution environment for smart contracts, complying with the highest encryption standards, in order to secure the economization of future IoT devices.
