Mason, a Seattle, WA-based provider of mobile infrastructure for smart hardware products, raised $25M in Series A funding.
The round was led by Coatue Management, with participation from GGV Capital and Base10. In conjunction with the funding, Thomas Laffont and Arielle Zuckerberg from Coatue joined Mason’s board.
The company intends to use the funds for continued hiring growth, expansion of the Mason hardware portfolio, and strategic initiatives to expedite bringing smart hardware to new markets.
Led by founder and CEO Jim Xiao, Mason provides mobile infrastructure—including hardware, software, and services—to allow companies to build and scale smart hardware products. Its solution provides end-to-end control over everything from the hardware and operating system to device management and data plans, so customers can spend more time building products, and less time worrying about their underlying mobile infrastructure.
Customer use cases include patient engagement solutions in hospitals, electronic data capture for clinical trials, electronic logging for trucking, ordering kiosks at restaurants, dedicated gateways for medical devices, and more.
