Cisco’s IoT World Forum is holding a wonderful challenge open to women between the ages of 13-18 to develop innovative uses for IoT technologies. I love when my passion to help girls explore technology careers collaborates with my RFID marketing and IoT marketing business. According to Cisco, the Internet of Everything will generate 1.7 trillion dollars of incremental revenue in the next five years. By 2020, the girls can start cashing in on their IoT ideas.
