The Zynect Story

Established in 2010 in Ithaca, NY

In 2010 a group of Cornell female lab professionals started a book club. On a sunny May day these women hosted a family party. Two of the husbands struck up a conversation and quickly realized they were both tech enthusiasts. That introduction led to the formation of Zynect®. Both motivated by useful technology and a sustainable future, the sensor guys Dirk Swart and Vic Aprea teamed up to make a difference.
