This Seattle company makes radio-tracking tags that connect approximately six billion items around the world. Co-founded in 2000 by CEO Chris Diorio and Caltech physicist Carver Mead, Impinj has attracted customers including Airbus Helicopters, Macy's, the organizers of the New York City Marathon, and several hospitals and medical centers. The company's tags use radio frequency identification (RFID) to track anything from marathon runners' bibs to airplane customers' luggage. Today, Diorio is expanding Impinj's technology into new markets, including tracking food preparation and service at restaurants.
