Thoughts from some of our follow-on investors:

Eric Scott (HVF) – “The ability to control the light in your environment – from anywhere – is not something you think about until you spend a couple days living with LIFX. It’s just how things should be and hard to imagine going back.”

Rick Baker (Blackbird VC) – “We’re very pleased to be backing the LIFX team as they re-invent something fundamental to our modern way of life.”

Craig Shapiro (Collaborative Fund) – “We are excited to see the technology, standards, and products for internet-connected devices evolve. In LIFX, we saw as a chance to support a team that’s innovating for a form factor that’s ubiquitous (in US homes alone, there are over 4 billion light sockets). By building the bridge between software and hardware, we feel that light bulbs are only just the start.”
