History We were founded in a preschool developmental achievement center volunteer project in 1985. In the first five years as nonprofit, sales grew from $20,000 to $900,000. In 1990 AbleNet became an independent for-profit enterprise. In 1998, it became 100% employee owned. The past years have brought significant growth and healthy profitability in an industry that continues to expand due to the intense need individuals with disabilities experience and the technological opportunities that continue to develop.
