Enlighted was a brand new technology in the commercial IoT space. It had immense credibility in Silicon Valley and the Bay area – with early adopters like Google and LinkedIn as customers – but it was targeting a generally conservative marketplace with a new, cutting-edge product unlike much else out there.

It enlisted Sweeney’s help to build brand awareness, and position itself as a true industry disrupter.


  • To-date, Sweeney has secured more than 242 million earned media impressions for the brand.
  • Secured coverage in leading media outlets like TechCrunch, Wired, Forbes Tech Council, Bloomberg, WSJ and CBS on Enlighted’s behalf to name a few.
  • Established Enlighted as a key thought leader by securing speaking opportunities and keynotes at leading lighting/building, healthcare and IoT conferences, including: HIMSS, Lightfair International, AAMI and IBcon.
