What is Bekonix?

Bekonix is a new platform that allows people to create smart connected devices without needing to know how to design hardware or write software code. The platform is available on both Windows and Mac, and users can design their own devices using Bekonix Designer. What sets Bekonix apart is by removing the complicated technical obstacles, Bekonix is really changing who can make sophisticated technology products.

This is exciting news, as it means that even those without a technical background can use Bekonix to create custom devices. They have already received $1.3M funding from Moneta Ventures, Growth Factory, and Evolution Ventures who understand the value and potential of this technology.

How did they get here?

Prior to any fundraising, a mutual friend connected co-founder Daniel Kaye with Phil Scott, a consultant with the Northern California Innovation District (NCID). He attributes the moniker “World’s Greatest Connector” to Phil, because of the constant flow of introductions and meetings he helped facilitate for them. Becoming one of the first anchor tenants at NCID was the perfect place and timing for them as they scale up and work to disrupt the IoT market – the latter being something Bekonix President, Jyoti Das, was brought on to do because of his decades of experience at IBM and Intel leading internal and external market transformations.

How is this technology used?

One of the exciting projects that Bekonix is working on is in the field of education. By making drag-and-drop coding accessible to all, they hope to engage students in the process of creating and building from an early age. This could be a game-changer for the future of education, as it allows students to learn and experiment in a hands-on way.

But Bekonix isn’t just limited to education. Whether you’re a creative teenager looking to build something cool, an entrepreneur looking to bring a new product to market or even an Enterprise-level company solving a logistics problem, Bekonix offers an accessible, no-code solution.

Frontline Metal, a woman-owned and operated sign manufacturing company out of Rancho Cordova, is one such partner using Bekonix technology to enhance their product offerings. By combining art and technology, Frontline Metal is able to create even more unique and innovative signs for their customers.

What’s next for Bekonix?

Looking to the future, Bekonix is focused on expanding their team and getting involved with more people, companies, and educational institutions. They are excited to continue building and innovating in the smart connected device space, and are looking for solid, creative people to join their team.

See for yourself the exciting ways their technology is being used. Their Showcase Videos show off interactive, light up Ski Suits, a Light Puck used to enhance storytelling in Dungeons and Dragons, and even makes an appearance in a Ghostbusters costume worn by Adam Savage from MythBusters at the New York Comic Con in 2021.

The NCID is proud they call Granite School home and look forward to seeing what’s next from them. For more information, please visit Bekonix.
