SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/20/14 -- OnBeep today announced that it has secured $6.25 million in funding to make beautiful wearable communication devices that unite groups and allow teams to collaborate more fluidly in real time. The Series A funding round was led by Rich Levandov of Avalon Ventures, with seed funding from Gil Penchina's AngelList syndicate, Matt Mullenweg, Jeremy LaTrasse, Jonathan Heiliger, Fuel Capital and a select group of highly connected Silicon Valley investors.
Jesse Robbins, Greg Albrecht and Roger Wood founded OnBeep based on their shared vision for a new kind of communication technology. The trio's unique background in technology and design allows them to build a next-generation wearable that blends form and function.
"From people organizing sports events and music festivals, to friends on a ski trip, to parents keeping track of kids at the zoo, our most memorable experiences are created when people work together in real time. OnBeep brings mobile groups together without the distraction of looking at their phone," says Jesse Robbins, CEO & Founder of OnBeep. "We make it easy for people to instantly connect, collaborate and do amazing things together."
The OnBeep team is a diverse group of 20 designers, engineers and artists who previously worked at Apple, Amazon, Google, Nextel, Reebok, Ralph Lauren, Splunk, iRobot, Motorola, Chef, Ekso Bionics and Meyer Sound. Additionally, OnBeep is partnered with PCH Access, a hardware manufacturing accelerator, to produce the product this year.
"There are countless mobile messaging apps, and none of them give people a way to stay connected to each other without having to look down at their smartphone," says Rich Levandov, Partner at Avalon Ventures. "We backed OnBeep because we believe they will fundamentally change the way the world communicates."
