Filament builds hardware and software for the Industrial Internet, allowing companies to securely connect and monitor their assets through long-range wireless networks. By encrypting down to the hardware level and leveraging blockchain technology, Filament’s decentralized network stack allows any device to connect, interact and transact value independent of a central authority. Led by CEO Allison Clift-Jennings, Filament began in 2012 as a team of self-starters tinkering with connecting devices in their own homes. Today, they’re committed to bringing decentralized connectivity to industrial infrastructure around the world.
