Sano, a San Francisco, CA-based maker of a wearable device that monitors metabolic activity, raised $10.25m in seed funding.
The round was led by True Ventures and Intel Capital, with participation from Felicis Ventures, Elevation Capital, Floodgate, and Rock Health.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to advance the platform and expand operations. It is hiring.
Led by Founder Ashwin Pushpala, Sano has developed a biometric sensor that aims to help people understand what’s happening inside their bodies through continuously monitoring important markers in their bodies’ chemistry.
Still in stealth mode, the company’s team comes from leading technology companies (Apple, Google, Samsung, Fitbit) and academic institutions (Stanford, UC Berkeley, MIT).
