Christopher Schlaeffer pitches Yetu from Berlin
Ecosummit TV: Christopher Schlaeffer pitches Yetu at ECO13 Berlin. The Berlin-based startup develops an open smart home platform that they license as a service to utilities and telecoms. Christopher left Deutsche Telekom to found Yetu 2 years ago because he believes that smart home is the third wave of the consumer Internet. An open platform is badly needed that connects everything with open APIs. A unique feature of Yetu’s energy management module is device recognition based on algorithms allowing the user to compare their energy consumption per device. It is too early to tell whether Christopher and his team will reach their goal of establishing as the leading smart home platform that also enables universal applications including entertainment and security. However, this startup should be on your watch list. Moreover, they are fundraising and are interested in talking to smart green investors and utilities.
