A cross-discipline meeting of minds to innovate Smart Systems and IoT software tools and business strategy

virtual design sprint

Harbor Research created the Smart Systems Lab as a vehicle for partnering with companies of all shapes and sizes to solve big challenges and create tangible impact throughout their innovation journey.

Our singular focus is on the software solutions that support Smart Systems and services.

We offer access to the lab via simple monthly subscription packages designed to suit any budget.

Intro to the Smart Systems Lab


Software solutions that support smart systems and services will be developed in radically different ways from the recent past. As a participant in the Smart Systems Lab ecosystem, you recognize the need to:

  • Stratify and understand the relative positioning of the constantly evolving landscape for new software tools and frameworks
  • Maximize the value of new developments in software infrastructure, workflow automation and application development
  • Address diverse new developer “personas” coming into play and address a growing community of software innovators in targeted industrial domains
  • Tap into new modes and interactions between and among developer personas

Our Mission


Our mission is to bridge the gap between the innovation efforts of industrial technology incumbents and a new generation of software solutions. We’ve got the bases covered to help your team reach success. The Smart Systems Lab team is an intersection of consulting, research, technology, accelerators, entrepreneurship, finance, design, marketing and legal.

Client Testimonials


“Smart Systems is currently a fragmented landscape where large industrials rarely meet small innovators and new technologies. The Small Systems Lab allows players of all size and scope a risk-free way to collaborate and grow their businesses.”
