Steering Members are strategic partners who represent the top-level of membership. You represent the future of the decentralized wireless ecosystem and are one of the most important and influential organizations. As a member, you are steering the entirety of the technology and industry toward the future.
Operating memberships are for organizations that want to drive and deliver wireless, peer-to-peer technologies to the market. You are an organization classified as an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), supply chain and logistics company, service provider, or other B2B and B2B2C company. You are a key builder and already support strategic partnerships to grow the ecosystem.
Startup Members are innovative startups that provide as much value as large corporations, especially when it comes to building tooling, coordinating micro-communities, and providing feedback. Startups must employ fewer than 20 people and have raised less than $5M. Because of your status as an early-stage startup, this membership tier is made more accessible.
Patron Members are the bedrock of membership. You are a passionate individual and Helium hotspot super host. Whether you have been a long-time or new supporter of peer-to-peer wireless networks, you want to take on more and become an important voice in the network. This tier is not eligible for organizations.
This is a tier exclusive to academic, non-profit, and government organizations who want to contribute to the success of wireless, peer-to-peer networks. This tier is for you if you are providing grant funding or conducting research on decentralized wireless, network security, cryptography, and more.
