Manufacturing Lead

Broomfield, CO

Biofire’s mission is to redesign firearms from the ground up for the 21st century, bringing much-needed innovation to a space that has seen little innovation in 50 years. Named the “Tesla of the gun world” by the WSJ, Biofire is enabling radically safer ownership of firearms.

A technological solution that sidesteps the political conversation around guns, Biofire’s Smart Gun™ is uniquely able to prevent avoidable and accidental gun deaths. By offering gun owners the option of a Smart Gun™ that only they can use, we are empowering them with full control over their firearm so that the next time a child or teenager finds a gun, it will be locked and unusable. This is just the beginning of the improvements we will bring to market by solving the hard problems and rethinking every aspect to create the modern firearm.

Biofire has received international recognition in the WSJ, NYT, Bloomberg, Fast Company, and many more for our industry-changing technology. We are backed by expert investors, founders, and advisors.
