Our Brief History

Driven to make a difference in the world, Particle Founder Zach Supalla started this company because his dad was deaf and he wanted to create a connected light that flashed whenever his father received a text message. This started Zach on a journey to ask, "What if we could reprogram lights to make our lives easier?" And second, "What if everything could be reprogrammed to make our lives easier?"

Today, that’s precisely what Particle does. Except now, Particle is an integrated IoT platform designed to help companies reprogram their businesses for the better. Since launching in 2013, Particle has become the most widely used integrated IoT platform, supporting 8,500 companies, 250,000 developers worldwide.
