innovate5G was founded by Chris Stark and Rashmi Varma to open up the 5G ecosystem beyond traditional players and enable everyone to participate. innovate5G developed a platform – in5Genius – for application developers to test their 5G applications in a cost-effective, secure and pressure-free environment, and at their own pace. Whether its an idea for a gaming, industrial, or enterprise application, innovate5G is eliminating barriers for developers to test out their ideas- such as having to partner with a carrier or large OEM.
In addition, innovate5G is working with universities and innovation zones to build 5G networks and it is developing a lab-sharing model in a similar vein to Airbnb. It also designs and builds bespoke private CBRS LTE and 5G networks for enterprises.
