How a VC-Backed CEO Sleeps 9 Hours (Recruit Rockstars 405)

Food. Activity. Sleep.

If you’re not doing all 3 properly, you’re far less likely to scale your business successfully.

In fact, we’re getting less sleep than ever. And, with today’s understandable stressors, the quality of our sleep has suffered.

But I tracked down a Venture-backed CEO who sleeps like a baby. Nine hours a night.

He’s Matteo Franceschetti, Co-Founder & CEO of Eight Sleep

Based in NY, Eight Sleep developed a proprietary technology called the Pod that enhances sleep performance, and is currently used by pro athletes and top performers across multiple industries to fall asleep faster and get more restful sleep. The end goal of the Pod is to compress sleep and scan your body while asleep to monitor your health.

It’s the “Peloton of Sleep”

Eight Sleep was named one of Fast Company’s “Most Innovative Companies” in 2018, recognized as one of TIME’s “Best Inventions” in 2019.

Matteo & team are backed by some of top VC’s around: Azure Capital Partners, Comcast Ventures, Craft Ventures, Founders Fund, Khosla Ventures, Y Combinator, 8VC, Jason Calacanis, Sway Ventures

In this 20-minute episode, Matteo reveals how he’s putting a Rockstar in every seat of Eight Sleep.

(It’s sure to keep you awake.)
