“The market is overdue for a new player to bring passion back to the field of consumer tech; one that celebrates artistry and hopes to organize our digital life in one connected space,” said Manu Sharma, VP, and GM of Nothing India.

He further added, “We at Nothing are excited that our new strategic and private investors from India feel the same and believe in our vision and mission. In 2021, we successfully launched one of the most anticipated tech products of the year, Nothing ear (1) and we assure you, this is just the beginning.”
