Hey Ben, I would love to! Well, my co-founders Kurt, Zack and I worked at a product development firm together when Kurt was taking care of his twin cousins, one of which had cerebral palsy. He saw how his aunt was physically sick from the stress she was going through every day and the thought came: "How is it that we have so much amazing technology in the world but my aunt has to use old fashioned audio and video to give her some peace of mind? Shouldn't there be something better?" Well earlier that week we had learned about pulse oximetry (the little red light that they clip on your finger when you go into the hospital) and it all just kind of clicked. From there we funded the Owlet on business plan competitions and a lot of passion for an entire year. Then we raised a $2M seed round and went deep into product development and now after almost a whole year of beta testing, a few hospital partnerships, a series A funding, a grant from the National Institutes of Health, and over 2 billion infant heart beats measured, we are transitioning out of private beta to public release. Along with that we are announcing these amazing stories from mothers in the video above.
