Breadware’s Origin Story
Frustrated at how costly and difficult it was to get a connected product to market, Breadware was founded in 2015 to be a conduit for businesses to build and deploy IoT products with less pain.
Our first landlord was Virgil Elings, an entrepreneur known for commercializing atomic force microscopy. A bit eccentric, he used this Santa Ynez wine country mansion solely for storing part of his vintage motorcycle collection.
Elings offered to move the motorcycles so we could run the company and live there because one of our founders impressed him by machining a custom part for one of his motorcycles that he could no longer find.
As the company grew, HQ was moved to Reno to be part of the growing tech community.
Breadware was acquired by our longtime client, StoneAge, Inc., in the spring of 2020, and acquired IoT software company, Medium One, at the beginning of 2022.
At Breadware, we are on a mission to empower our clients to improve the world by helping them create simple, connected, and scalable IoT solutions.
