Matteo has always been obsessed with performance. Athletic performance, business performance, and now sleep performance.

An athlete from a young age—he was a competitive ski racer in his native Italy and played tennis and raced cars on the European stage. Not surprisingly, sleepless nights were a way of life. It was his quest for more restorative sleep, in fact, that led him to quit his previous life and launch EightSleep, a New York-based company dedicated to fueling human potential through optimal sleep, and to turning the bed into a seamless health platform for improved health, performance, and longevity.

Top 3 Value Bombs:

1. Lack of sleep can affect your longevity and health.

2. When looking for funding, the key is having traction; it will make the process a lot easier.

3. The future of the sleep industry is that you will be able to sleep for 6 hours yet get more rest with the help of technology.
