About: Crownstone brings artificial intelligence towards our homes and offices. Crownstone manufactures smart plugs and wire connectors. It brings the first home automation system on the market that pinpoints the location of personal devices such as smartphones, bracelets, and watches. The system learns from the behavior of the user and by just walking in or out of a room lights and devices can be switched on or off. This brings us all both comfort, productivity, and energy savings at once. Find out more about Crownstone on their website: https://crownstone.rocks.

We at Almende Investments believe that ICT is most valuable when it is used to offer people the opportunity to organize their activities for themselves. Thus we have brought together several companies which are orientated around the concept of self-organization. All these companies use ICT – for instance agent technology or self-learning software – to aid people in organizing their own networks, and thus their own lives.
