About Leverege

Our mission is to enable and accelerate the digital transformation of all organizations, amplifying their human potential by providing software products and managed services that help them build and launch Internet of Things (IoT) solutions.

We Believe in Amplifying Human Potential

For half a century, digital transformation has been the driving force in the birth, growth, and death of organizations. Organizations have either ridden the waves of digital transformation to great success or have been drowned beneath them. Digital transformation amplifies the human potential of organizations by reducing friction in communication, information collection, decision making, and getting work done. Organizations with less friction will adapt, evolve, and grow faster than other organizations and win long-term. This is critical in rapidly changing environments, and the world is changing more quickly than ever.

IoT is the Next Stage of Digital Transformation

01
The PC Stage

The first wave of digital transformation was the PC Stage, when PCs were networked with each other using Ethernet. No longer was there a one-to-one relationship of person-to-computer, but now, networks of people and computers were formed. This created an explosion in business applications, like email and spreadsheets, reduced friction within organizations to get work done, and enabled the great success of companies like Microsoft and Oracle. The PC Stage changed everything.

02
The Web Stage

The second wave of digital transformation was the Web Stage, when the World Wide Web ascended and computers were networked over great distances using optical fiber. No longer were networks of computers geographically isolated and predominantly located within organizations, but now, consumers used the web browser to tap into a global community. This created an explosion in web pages, reduced friction to reach customers, and enabled the great success of companies like Google and Amazon. The Web Stage changed everything.

03
The Mobile Stage

The third wave of digital transformation was the Mobile Stage, when the iPhone unleashed mass adoption of smartphones networked using cellular 4G. No longer were people only connected to the web if they owned a PC and were sitting in front of it, but now, virtually all people could be connected anywhere, at all times. This created an explosion in social networks and mobile applications, reduced friction for organizations to interact with their customers and employees, and enabled the great success of companies like Apple and Facebook. The Mobile Stage changed everything.

04
The IoT Stage

IoT is the next stage of digital transformation. Billions of cheap devices will provide real-time insights into every asset, process, and system that’s important to a given organization using Low-Power Wide-Area Networks (LPWANs). No longer will organizations wonder at the location or status of their things and/or collect this information manually, but instead, organizations will know automatically and in real-time about everything that’s important to their success. This will create an explosion in IoT solutions, reducing friction within organizations to gain critical insights and make effective decisions, and will enable the great success of the dominant companies of tomorrow. IoT changes everything.

Organizations Aren't Equipped to Succeed With IoT Right Now

To survive and thrive, organizations must ride the next wave of digital transformation and build and launch IoT solutions. However, IoT requires a new mix of skills and currently needs deep expertise due to the difficult challenges that exist in its nascent state. 

We are here to enable and accelerate the digital transformation of all organizations, amplifying their human potential by helping them to successfully build and launch IoT solutions that provide real-time information on every thing that’s important to them.

Our Vision

We believe in amplifying human potential. We are constantly asking: how can we help people to achieve more with less effort, and enable them to do what was previously unimaginable? We believe that one of the best answers to this question lies in Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, with machines and computers doing what humans cannot so that humans are freed to do what only humans can. And so we believe that machines and computers are not substitutes for people, they are complements. Value is created when we seek to empower people, not make them obsolete.

Our
History

Leverege was founded in 2014 by Eric Conn and Steven Lee, long-time friends, entrepreneurs, and software engineers, with the mission to enable and accelerate the digital transformation of all organizations by providing software products and managed services that help them build and launch Internet of Things (IoT) solutions. The two founders have nearly 50 years of hands-on experience designing and delivering transformative, mission-critical systems to both commercial and Governmental customers around the world.

One of their crowning achievements was developing the nation’s first comprehensive air defense system and delivering it to the US Air Force, NORAD, and the FAA 73 days after the events of 9/11. The groundbreaking system that they developed has been operational 24/7/365 since its original installation and has protected US citizens, foreign dignitaries, and Government officials from terrorist attacks for 18 years.
