Goo Goo Lourie 27 October 2017

IoT.nxt CEO, Nico Steyn, and Chairman, Wayne Fitzjohn, visited the USA in September to explore partnership opportunities and collaboration with some of the largest tech companies in the USA.

In this special edition of the first Talk IoT podcast, Goo Goo Lourie sits down with IoT.nxt CEO, Nico Steyn, and Chairman, Wayne Fitzjohn to talk about the company’s global expansion plans.

 In the podcast, Wayne takes us through IoT.nxt plans to conquer the US, the strongest technology centre and the driver of new technologies in the world.

“You are not a true IoT operator if you are not in the US,” declares Wayne.

While, Nico is not worried about the tough US market, which has seen some big South African companies leaving in a huff without any success.

“I am not really afraid of the big guys in the US because I think the big guys have a whole lot of issues that influence their thinking. I am more afraid of the smaller guys because they are agile, more quickly make a decision and implement tomorrow,” explains Nico.
