Our Story

Take a walk along any city street.

You may spot a parking space opening up. A sticky sludge of mud and leaves clogging a storm drain. A construction worker stepping in for a broken crosswalk signal. A restaurant worker dragging in bags of recycling that missed pick-up. An ambulance crawling through traffic at a red light. And you might think, how could people, systems, and services be better connected?

We started Stae with this question. Over the past two years, we’ve worked alongside city innovation and response centers to build a simple, secure infrastructure that empowers everyone—from city managers to city workers—to make better, data-driven decisions. Our vision is to enable a truly connected, intelligent city.
