And we are very excited to share that Eight, a smart sleep products manufacturing company has also raised another $14M in Series B funding round led by Khosla Ventures in participation with existing investors Yunqi Partners and YCombinator.
“The partnership with Khosla is a clear fit for us. They share our vision of a future in which technology and data make healthcare more scientific and consistent. With this new funding, our growing team and investors reaffirm the commitment we made in 2014 to bringing the biggest technological evolution that sleep has seen in the last 300 years.”, said Matteo Franceschetti Co-founder and CEO, Eight.
