On Tuesday, Kickstarter success BedJet announced that it has appointed its advisory board. This group was created to provide strategic guidance and help drive the company’s continued growth.

bedjet womanBedJet claims its sleep-inducing climate control device is the first and only product that can both cool you off within 10 seconds and heat the bedding of a king size bed to feel like the sheets just came out of dryer in only 180 seconds. The company stated:

“Once activated, the patent pending and precisely tuned blower, ducting system and outlet nozzle operate at a very specific air pressure to create a scientifically magical event in your bedding. The BedJet quietly generates a small cushion of turbulent air between the upper and lower bedsheets that lifts the top bedding off the bed by a small amount. This tenting effect on the bedding combined with the turbulent air flow enables the air to permeate throughout the entire sleeping area and provide even heating or cooling.”

Those on the advisory board are Bob Hellyer, former president of Simmons, Kingsdown and former CEO of Spring Air; Danny Sfeir, former President of Tempur-Pedic Direct Response and former Chief Marketing Officer of Tempur-Pedic; Dr. Jordan Stern, founding member of the Sleep Technology Council of the National Sleep Foundation and CEO of the BlueSleep center; and Keith Scott, the former CEO of six venture capital-private equity backed start-ups and previously Sr. Vice President at Flextronics.

BedJet CEO, Mark Aramli, stated:

Mark Aramli“Our innovative BedJet technology exceeded expectations for first year success in the sleep industry. In our first twelve months of shipping, we delivered over 8000 BedJet systems directly to consumers. We believe BedJet has vaulted to become #1 selling active climate control system for beds in the America and the #1 customer rated product in the active cooling and heating sleep category.  Medical science has proven that temperature is critical to quality sleep and the phenomenal customer feedback has been strong validation for our unique and patented JetConvect air technology.  As we transition from experimental start-up company to industry success story, we are delighted to draw on the experience of our Advisory Board to help drive growth.  Our Advisory Board members represent an iconic group of executives, each of whom in their own right have brought great innovation and change to the industry.”

BedJet successfully secured a total of $1.4 million through two Kickstarter initiatives and was named Top 10 Kickstarter technology projects of 2015 and Top 25 Kickstarter technology projects of all time for its BedJet V.2. The company also announced its Series A Funding Round, which is on equity crowdfunding portal, CircleUp.
