Our history

Driven to make a difference in the world, Particle CEO and cofounder 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 a full-stack IoT Platform-as-a-Service that’s helped some of the most innovative companies in the world reprogram their businesses for the better.
