Beddr shared our perspective with CNBC that poor sleep is making us sick, obese and unhappy. We spend $30 billion on products to improve our sleep but find few real solutions. Beddr has developed the first digital sleep clinic that integrates an FDA cleared sleep sensor, a nationwide telemedicine network of sleep physicians, and a team of behavioral sleep coaches into a single digital solution designed to address the root causes of sleep problems including physiological (apnea), psychological (insomnia) and behavioural (sleep hygiene).
Further, Beddr has seen strong customer and sales growth, a diverse workforce, and strong product development focused on helping people achieve their true sleep with a suite of products designed to help people get to the root of their sleep issues. Beddr recently announced precision sleep health for employers, and looks forward to making these programs available to all sleepers.
Thanks CNBC Upstart 100 for the honor!
