Surveillance Startup Entropix Wins Silicon Valley Competition

Author: John Honovich, Published on Jun 02, 2016

Industry people often complain about the lack of high tech startups over the past decade. With more and more former startups / independents (e.g., Exacq, Aimetis, Brivo, VideoInsight, Milestone, etc.) being sold off, there are fewer new ones rising to replace them.

Now, a new startup lead by former Arecont leaders, Entropix, is gaining ground in Silicon Valley.

In this note, we examine their recent progress, their upside and risks.
