The 2021 Big50 Startup Report spotlights 50 high-upside startups that have gained a foothold in fast-growth tech sectors. Each year, Startup50 features startups that are poised to upend the status quo in a range of industry es, from next-gen cybersecurity to Software-Defined Networking to the Internet of Things.
Morse Micro came into the competition through the StartUp50 Tip Line Challenge. According the report, “the startup has locked down a substantial amount of VC funding to develop a unique approach to IoT connectivity: ultra-long-range, ultra-low-power Wi-Fi.”
Morse Micro’s 802.11ah Wi-Fi HaLow technology features one of the smallest and lowest-power single-chip solutions that incorporates radio, PHY, and MAC as well as an optional host applications processor, designed in compliance with the sub-1 GHz IEEE 802.11ah standard to power the IoT.
The startups in the 2021 Big50 faced a series of challenges designed to test their ability to carve out a market niche, refine messaging, motivate customers, and impress VCs. Startups are also judged on their ability to secure funding, land on-the-record customers, and attract top-flight talent.
In all, more than 180 startups were considered for the 2021 Big50. The Final 50 are the determined few who fought their way through the entire gauntlet and have the right tools (team, funding, market positioning, etc.) in place to upend markets.
“The startups in this report are the ones that have the right combination of attributes, such as funding and named customers, that show they’re ready to compete in cut-throat, high-growth markets,” said Jeff Vance, founder and editor-in-chief of Startup50.
