It’s no secret that sleep deprivation and poor sleep quality are the “new trend” for millenials between their expectations to maintain a strong “career hustle” and inability to disengage from their devices. However, it’s also no secret that with poor sleep health comes many physical and mental health issues. Luckily, Sonic Sleep Coach is here to help you sleep better and deeper. Sonic Sleep not only tracks sleep accurately, but also improves your sleep quality with scientifically backed solutions funded by the National Institute of Health.
Meet the Team
Daniel Gartenberg PhD, Co-Founder and CEO, built Sonic Sleep Coach alongside Nick Talwar, Co-Founder and CTO. Gartenberg, with a passion for inventing since the young age of twelve, has studied sleep for over ten years. Nick also started at a young age, beginning his first company at the age of fourteen. Their journey to optimize sleep took off in Daniel’s senior year of college when he won an engineering competition for creating a smart alarm clock. After doing a PhD in Cognitive Psychology and consulting work for a major hardware manufacturer, Gartenberg realized the issue in sleep trackers’ inefficiency to accurately measure sleep and actually provide improvement solutions. After the release of the Apple Watch, the idea of Sonic Sleep came to mind along with some novel intellectual property (the company has 1 granted patent and 3 non-provisional patents). To build the system, it was necessary to collect proprietary datasets in a well-controlled laboratory environment, and after receiving almost $1 million in non-dilutive capital from the federal government, Sonic Sleep Coach was developed.

Sonic Sleep’s Future
With Sonic Sleep’s unique business model, the future looks promising. Instead of doctors prescribing drugs for sleep disorders, doctors will prescribe Sonic Sleep’s software solution that aims to get to the root of the problem and will produce stronger results. In the meantime, the software is available to anyone with a smartphone who can use the technology by purchasing a yearly subscription. With the help of Quake Capital, Lightspeed Venture Partners, and Bulletproof Inc, Sonic Sleep aims to successfully navigate marketing to grow exponentially. Sonic Sleep believes that Quake will be essential into launching their product and providing the network needed to address the growing corporate wellness space. We are ecstatic to be part of Sonic Sleep’s mission-driven solution to help people sleep better.
