Cocoon recently attended the Amazon Web Services Summit 2017 at London’s ExCel Centre. We were part of the Amazon Launchpad showcase, presenting alongside Beeline (www.beeline.co) and Roli (www.roli.com).

Our team were showing attendees how Cocoon makes home security simple, so everyone can feel safe. The crowd was full of technology professionals. They showed a great interest in our Subsound® technology, and in how uniquely we use machine learning to better protect the home.

Rob Clarke, our Lead Developer, took to the stage to tell Cocoon’s story from a Research and Development perspective. He also explained how Amazon Launchpad has been a great support in Cocoon’s growth. Launchpad is a unique programme showcasing cutting-edge products to millions of Amazon customers, to accelerate the success of startups who are truly innovative.
