Founded by Marco Brunetti and Simone Sangiorgi, Kippy is the pet care company that develops and manufactures IOT devices capable of real-time tracking and monitoring the health and motor activity of pets (dogs and cats), thanks to “SIM on chip” technology and operating on a dedicated M2M network.
After achieving great success in Italy and Europe, Kippy aimed to expand further by offering its product to more pet owners worldwide. By joining Datamars, the company will have the opportunity to continue to grow and evolve its offering by also entering the U.S., the world’s top market for pet wearables and pet care-related spending.
