Dandelions' Founder: Brian Lim


Brian Lim is the founder and CEO of Wise Networking, trading as Dandelions.

Born and raised in Singapore, Brian moved to Australia in 2003 to get his Diploma of IT from UTS InSearch, Bachelor of Science and IT, and Master of IT from University of Technology Sydney.

Prior to The Wise Networking, he had started a company in the US with his friend where they were developing technology that allowed people to conduct chemical analysis of the earth from space. The capability would allow them to monitor farms and cities from space from a chemical perspective.

After 4 years, their company managed to raise 5 million USD seed to get the company going. Shortly after that, He and the co-founder decided to part ways, so he returned to Sydney to build Wise Networking.

Brian's Wise Networking journey began when he wanted to figure out how to terraform planets or climate change for desirable effects. So, he looked into the needs of providing macro and micro-scale information gathering at a scale of a planet. It was a real challenge for him to understand how this was a possible business, and a lot of people do not understand what it takes to get there, and even fewer understood how the idea was a valid business.

Brian decided that the right path was a way to build communication/sensor towers that could be deployed from an aircraft or spacecraft to provide communications in remote areas and disaster regions were the starting point. His team is currently working on testing the system at 30 km altitude and communication gear that it can carry. Currently, Dandelions has Wifi working at a 5.7 km range to a mobile phone at a 7mb/s bandwidth.

Brian is excited to be leading Dandelions, and when we asked Brian about the best part he said, "Working on building the future!"
