Our Story

In 2009, an acquaintance of future Reconnect CEO, Sam Hotchkiss, received a DUI. The process utilized outdated, phone-based systems, and Sam knew he could disrupt the industry. Early in the process he would meet Ed Larson, an investor with a long history in the telco industry. The two would go on to found Call2test, a revolutionary tool for automated and randomized drug court check-ins. 2018 would see the release of ConnectComply, an app-based tool for participants to check in with a selfie.

Sam saw another criminal justice market that needed disrupting; court-ordered monitoring. He asked the question “how do we replace bulky and stigma-inducing bulky ankle monitors?” and went on the rebuild them from the ground up. Launching in 2020, ConnectBands are lightweight, discreet, and easy to use.
