Silicon Valley has become one of the capitals of the world for technology startups; within its highly competitive landscape of unicorns, SaaS/PaaS leaders, and big brands’ headquarters that call it home, one often wonders: where are the hardware designers? Let alone, when companies are wanting to incorporate embedded systems – how do they source their physical, product development? Within the valley’s digital ecosystem, 219 Design’s founders wanted to be the tangible difference – literally.
It’s with pleasure to announce that Ioterra has joined forces with 219 Design, a smart-product engineering firm, to bring IoT products to market with their in-house embedded-systems services.
“We were impressed by 219 Design’s range of projects within their portfolio alongside their evident, deep subject-matter expertise,” said Daniel Price, CEO of Ioterra. “To stand out as a leading Bay Area engineering design consultancy for the last 15 years is a colossal achievement and reason enough for us to be interested in a partnership. However, to also find out that 219 has a shared mission to advance health, communities, and daily lives through smart technology, we were confident they would make a great addition to the marketplace.”
219 Design’s core goals are to develop smart, meaningful products that delight the user and commercialize cutting-edge technologies. The team’s expertise includes in-house mechanical, electronic, software, and firmware development.
“For over fifteen years, we’ve been providing trustworthy, experienced product engineering services to our clients. With more disciplines in-house than most firms, we thrive on interdisciplinary projects. We’re excited to join Ioterra’s network and look forward to building a great partnership together,” said Miguel Piedrahita, co-founder and parter of 219 Design.
Together, Ioterra and 219 Design will:
- Promote and match 219 Design’s expertise to incoming businesses with IoT initiatives.
- Collaborate and create insightful content to address the markets’ rapid growth in adopting smart technology.
- Empower and build a community of professionals capable of bringing the most ambitious product concepts to market and accelerate the future of connected technology.
As a certified service partner, 219 Design looks forward to continuing to solve complex challenges by leveraging Ioterra’s network.
