List of Mavericks: My Annual CES 2015 Wrap-up

Text. Email. LinkedIn. Facebook. Voicemail.

All of the above were flooded Friday of last week as I returned from the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Every message or conversation started with the same question, “What did you see that you thought was cool?”

Mavericks are young — start-ups that disrupt niche verticals. We enjoy telling the stories of these Mavericks.

The number of companies being formed to bring connected devices to life year over year is staggering. In 2010 there were 12.5 billion connected devices. By 2015, it is predicted that number will double to 25 billion connected devices only to double again to 50 billion by 2020.
