Windy City Lab

Windy City Lab (WCL) specializes in consulting, workshops and CTO services in hardware, software and firmware for IoT products. Founded in 2018, WCL is specialized in helping IoT startups master the "IoT Start-up Challenge". There are many challenges when developing a hardware or a software product, and yet more when developing a connected product. The challenges range from architecture, prototyping, setting up cloud services, wireless communication, schematic design, firmware power management and more. Chicago Connectory members have access to Windy City Lab as walk-ins and are also invited to attend their weekly lunch-and-learns that cover the different challenges faced by IoT startups.


Let's build a connected world together.
