Beddr’s mission is to improve the quality of life for the one billion people worldwide who struggle with their sleep.

We spend 1/3 of our lives sleeping, but as many as two out of three adults consistently struggle with poor quality sleep. Beddr is focused on democratizing access to sleep health technology and expertise that helps people deeply understand and improve their sleep through user-centered design, backed by decades of sleep science and research.

We are an early stage, venture-backed startup led by a team of successful digital health entrepreneurs, with proven track-records of creating new markets and rapidly scaling successful companies.

Our philosophy is simple. Breathe more. Sleep Beddr. Here is our approach:

Empower people to make positive changes
