About Helium.

The Mission.

Helium was founded in 2013 by Shawn Fanning, Amir Haleem, and Sean Carey, with a mission to make it easier to build connected devices.

Our belief is that it shouldn't take expertise at all levels of the hardware, firmware, software and wireless stack to build your product or application. Helium's goal is to bring the same techniques that enabled the explosion of web and mobile applications to physical devices.
