Sleep is a vital aspect of our daily lives, yet many of us struggle to get the recommended hours each night; this is where the Hatch and its founders David and Anne Weiss come in.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one-third of adult Americans don't get the recommended seven hours of sleep per night. Developed by husband-and-wife Co-Founders David and Anne Weiss, Hatch is a company that provides an alarm clock that offers lights, sounds, music, or guided meditations designed to help people achieve better sleep through a combination of technology and science.
The Weiss' started the company after struggling to get their own daughter to sleep through the night. They set out to create a sleep device to help parents soothe their babies to sleep and stay asleep throughout the night: the Hatch Baby Rest, a night light and sound machine that can be controlled via a mobile app. The Hatch Baby Rest quickly gained popularity among parents, and the couple continued to innovate and expand their product line. They now offer a range of sleep products, including a portable sound machine, a smart sleep assistant, and a sleep coaching app.
Anne and David Weiss know from experience that quality sleep is essential for overall health and well-being and that technology can play a crucial role in helping people achieve better sleep. The Weiss' believe the Hatch device is meant to develop great habits and influence overall lifestyle choices. The way they run their business is commensurate with these beliefs, and they value the importance of vacation time, proper rest, and a solid work-life balance. To set an example for employees, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Anne Weiss puts her personal gym time and therapy hours on her work calendar to let employees know that wellness is more than just a good night's sleep – it's a holistic choice.
