Notion: The Story Behind This Smart Home Sensor Company
March 28, 2018
Notion is a Denver-based smart home security startup that has raised $16 million in funding following a solid crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. Notion’s small sensors can be placed near doors and other locations around the house to monitor motion, temperature, water leaks, etc. To learn more about Notion, I interviewed CEO Brett Jurgens.
Jurgens told me that he and fellow Notion co-founder Ryan Margoles are both Colorado natives. Jurgens said he was born and raised an hour outside of Denver in the city of Longmont, Colorado. And when Jurgens was between the ages of 11 and 12, he became a back-to-back World Yo-Yo Champion. Several years later, he went to school at the University of Colorado Boulder where he studied finance and real estate.
