6Harmonics (6H) is thrilled to announce we were selected as part of the seventh cohort of ventureLAB’s Hardware Catalyst Initiative.
6Harmonics was selected for its new, industrial-grade, innovative edge compute and communications system enabling real-time mission-critical automation at the network’s edge. The platform will enable industrial digital transformation and adoption of AI/ML on fixed and mobile industrial assets.
The platform is the world’s first to combine industrial edge computing and multiple communications ports, including 4G, 5G, WIFI-6, LoRa, GigE, with world-class routing and on-prem or cloud-based orchestration. The solution is for extreme use cases in mining, O&G, electrical utilities, smart farming, rail, and maritime transportation.
The selection process for cohort 7 was highly competitive, including a rigorous evaluation to ensure the selected companies were ready for success.
6H thanks the team at ventureLAB. This incredible program is a game-changer for hardware and semiconductor-focused innovations, providing us with the resources and support needed to thrive in the competitive tech landscape. As Canada’s leading lab and incubator for hardware founders, ventureLAB is empowering us and other Canadian companies to shape the future of technology.
6H also would like to thank our anchor clients in Mining, O&G, and other markets who have helped and guided us over the last two years, sharing their challenges and required solutions.
