Back in December 2020, OnePlus’s co-founder Carl Pei, who had left the company to pursue a new venture – had announced that he has secured funding from high-profile players for his new audio-centric venture. Carl’s new venture is named “Nothing” – yes Nothing! And, it has now announced its Series A round of funding.
He says “it is a new forward-thinking consumer technology company.” The company is on a mission to remove barriers between people and technology and create a seamless digital future.
Raises Series A funding
The London-based startup has announced that it has raised $15M (approx €12.3M) in its Series A round of funding led by GV – formerly Google Ventures. Besides, other investors also participated in this round including Casey Neistat (YouTube personality and co-founder of Beme), Kevin Lin (co-founder of Twitch), and Steve Huffman (co-founder and CEO of Reddit).
Tom Hulme, General Partner at GV says, “Carl Pei is a seasoned entrepreneur with marketing, hardware, and distribution experience that is key to bringing new devices to market. His vision for smart devices is compelling, and we have high confidence that with Carl’s global mindset, the “Nothing” team will have a meaningful impact on the market for consumer technology.”
