The K4Connect Story
In the beginning, K4Connect was only about technology. We were focused on creating solutions for smart homes and the internet of things. In truth, we were inventing some great technologies (and we have the patents to prove it!), but had no idea how powerful the idea, and our technology, could be until our CEO met a man impacted by MS who told him,
“…you guys can make my life better.”
From there we found our purpose and knew that the technologies we were developing could solve real and significant problems for an underserved part of our worldwide community.
From that day forward, our mission at K4Connect has been to create solutions that serve and empower older adults and individuals living with disabilities, enhancing their lives by integrating the latest in smart technologies into a single responsive system.

Scott Moody is the co-founder and CEO of K4Connect, a mission-centered technology company creating solutions that serve and empower older adults and individuals living with disabilities. Moody previously was the co-founder and CEO of AuthenTec, the only public company ever acquired by Apple and its technologies led to the introduction of the Touch ID. Although Scott had retired, it was on a trip to Rwanda that he was inspired to start another company, but only when he met someone that had MS that he realized that the technologies they were developing could make a real difference in the lives of those the company now serves.
