Supposedly they are raising a huge series B (500 mil) and I’m hearing they have the strongest Eng team of all the AV startups. Curious what others think of them.

    I mean... I’m biased... but yes, not just the strongest eng team and founders in the industry, but also amazing culture. We’re all quite optimistic :)

    Strongest engineering team? According to what? Not saying these aren't talented and smart people but that's obviously subjective.

      “We met with nearly every AV company in the world from Detroit to Singapore. But each discussion brought us back to Chris and his team as the benchmark against which everyone else was measured.”

    They’re golden for the foreseeable future assuming they continue to suckle on the VC teet. Bad news if they try to IPO anytime this year and likely next year.
