Our Mission

We’re building a connected future where no one is left behind.

Helium technology is paving the road to ubiquitous wireless coverage. We believe a more connected world accelerates the dissemination of knowledge, improves economies around resource management, and adds new layers of accountability and transparency.

User-owned infrastructure, made possible by the Helium Blockchain and its tokenomics, gives agency to communities and corporations to propagate their own wireless coverage. Our mission ultimately benefits telecom incumbents, new innovators, and the entire industry’s beneficiaries from an individual to international level.
