How was The Sleep Company Started

It is a popular belief that personal experiences always lead us to do something bigger in a better manner and this stands true for the founders of The Sleep Company.

When we became new parents, I really struggled with sleep and that was the first time we realized the importance of sleep. We struggled a lot to get a decent mattress and tried multiple options and were disappointed with the quality of mattress in India.

With a determination to find the solution, they have traveled across to understand and to do research on different sleep technologies and how they could really develop something which can be far superior to what is in the market today. They looped in sleep experts and scientists from DRDO to work on a new technology and after 1.5 years of research was born Smart Grid Technology – proven to provide Ultimate Comfort & Pain Relief.

So as to get validation for their product Priyanka and Harshil relied on two sources:

  1. First being technical validation, they performed tests like pressure mapping for Smart Grid Mattress vs. other kind of products like memory foam, coir, spring or latex mattress.
  2. In-market study with consumers to see how tangibly the products helped provide comfort and prevent body pains like back pain, neck pain.

The ideation for products at The Sleep Company started 2.5 years back. R&D was the phase where they have spent a lot of time so as to ensure that they develop a product which is far superior and delivers on its promise. After R&D they designed products with putting together lot of combinations and tested them with their consumers.

Finally, The Sleep Company has established their manufacturing unit to ensure the best quality products where each layer of The Sleep Company mattress has been designed with Sleep Science as the foundation.
