Community-Focused Beginnings


  • 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.





IoT Fuse was previously the name of a non-profit (501.c.3) professional network of makers, innovators, and business leaders in the Internet of Things space.  In 2019, this name was trademarked and sold to one of the founders of the non-profit, Patrick Delaney.  As of early 2020, this non-profit changed its name to Emerging Technologies North and still runs a hackathon and monthly discussions, as listed on its website here: https://www.emtechnorth.org/
Procedes from the ongoing operations of the IoT Fuse brand go to fund Emerging Technologies Midwest, or EmTech North.  EmTech North holds a monthly “user group” style meetings and a yearly IoT Hackday in the late fall. 
IoTFuse as a brand owned by KConfs, LLC continues Fusing together industry thought leaders with executives, builders and innovators.
