Finalists of the CODE_n Contest will present their IoT business models at CeBIT 2015 - the world's largest computer/IT expo.

LEAPIN Digital Keys is the only Australian start-up from around the world selected as a finalist for the CODE_n contest, Europe's leading start-up event.

The annual event will be held at the CeBIT trade show 2015 this March, and participating early-stage companies are expected to have business plans around the Internet of Things for this year's theme.

Around 400 companies applied for spaces at CODE_n, which run by financial services IT solutions firm GFT. Germany, the UK, the US, Ireland and Spain are some of the 16 countries which will be represented by the successful start-ups.

GFT Groups's CEO Ulrich Dietz said; "The Internet of Things, the ever-increasing digitization process is having a huge impact on our private and working lives. Change is becoming constant. We are facing huge challenges. Our finalists are demonstrating how to cope with these challenges and exploit the opportunities. This both reassures and excites us".

Mark Smith, Managing Partner at Ernst and Young, said; "Cities around the world are growing at breathtaking speed. Many city administrations face huge challenges with regard to mobility, energy, supplies, scarce resources, environmental protection and health provision".

Oliver Frese, Head of CeBIT at Deutsche Messe, said; "CODE_n15 is the perfect fit for CeBIT's lead topic d!conomy. It gives young startups with disruptive ideas the chance to show what digitization will mean for industry and society in the future. As in the years before, CODE_n15 will once again be a nucleus for digital pioneers at the CeBIT. And with this year's motto, "Into the Internet of Things", I'm certain hall 16 will once again thrill our visitors.

Steve Dunn, LEAPIN Digital Keys founder, said; "we thrilled and excited to be heading to CeBIT for CODE_n15, to demonstrate our business model of licencing to OEM's the "instruction sheet for how to build a smartlock". We're looking forward to talking with any OEM interested in getting into the smarthome and access control market with our SDK's, API's, cloud software/algorithms, and smartphone apps.
