- IoT Fuse started in 2014 as a small group of engineers, makers and software developers, lead by Patrick Delaney and Justin Grammens.
- The tech world had recently woken up and realized that with easily connectable wireless platforms and cloud services being easy to access – the Internet of Things was a real possibility. Of course, the knowledge and know-how about how to actually accomplish that connectivity was still fairly sparse.
- Between 2015 and 2018, we focused on sourcing, organizing and categorizing knowledge in the IoT space for attendees to build connections, with the idea being that the connections built at our conference should grow the economy. As a result we had sustainable growth over the years – growing from a small, completely volunteer-run conference into one of the most nationally recognized conferences of its kind.
IoT Fuse is a non-profit (501.c.3) professional network of makers, innovators, and business leaders in the Internet of Things space. Based in Minneapolis, IoT Fuse is the largest group of its kind in the United States. IoT Fuse holds an annual IoT Fuse Conference, as well as monthly “user group” style meetings and a yearly IoT Hackday in the late fall.
Fusing together industry thought leaders with executives, builders and innovators.
