About Aerial Technologies

Aerial Technologies was founded in 2015 in Montreal by a team of senior research scientists in the fields of wireless communications and artificial intelligence, within the umbrella of the TandemLaunch incubator. This unique company creation studio was key in helping define Aerial’s market access strategy.

The team’s initial idea revolved around how to re-purpose the ubiquitous WiFi signals around us. It transformed into a unique cloud-based solution that leverages existing wireless infrastructure and machine learning to give context, meaning and value to motion.

Our headquarters are based in Montreal, Canada, where our Engineering, Product Management and Marketing teams operate from. We also have two regional offices, primarily focused on Sales (United States and Spain). We are a fast-growing, extremely flexible company, fully embracing teleworking trends.

Our Vision
