Who We Are

When nfrastructure was launched by the Pickett family as a small technology company in 1992, one of the goals was to increase opportunity and improve the lives of the people and communities that become part of our story. This guiding principle has played a major role in the growth of a small business that started in the basement of a liquor store into one of New York’s largest private technology companies; and with the formation of Zones nfrastructure in 2018, one of the largest private technology companies in the world. This principle – to the benefit of deserving people and inspiring projects around the United States – also drives the philanthropic mission of the Pickett Family Foundation.


During 2018, the Pickett family and Pickett Family Foundation invested over $500,000 in causes that addressed significant social issues.
