Emergence Technologies, LLC, was founded by Howard Weinberg, who has an extensive 30 year background in the identification and marketing of disruptive and emerging technologies. Since 1989, his efforts were focused on identifying and introducing new technologies to key senior executives within the Executive Office of the President of the United States, Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, and the Federal Law Enforcement community. During this time, Mr. Weinberg supported the efforts of over 100 companies worldwide with introductions and in many cases the successful implementation of sensitive technologies within these various agencies.

In 2007, Mr. Weinberg was asked by a U.S. government hospital to perform a due diligence exercise regarding LED technology. He was specifically tasked to assess the quality, dependability and bottom line efficiencies of existing products.  The resulting in-depth investigation and the information gained from this project served as the catalyst that launched Emergence as a provider of linear LED replacement lamps, first to the hospital industry which has now expanded to retail stores, offices, educational institutions and manufacturing concerns.
