MKW client Whisper.ai, Inc. exited stealth last week and announced a new $35 million funding round led by Quiet Capital. As reported in TechCrunch, prior round investors Sequoia Capital and First Round Capital also participated. To date, Whisper has raised $53 million to build its potentially game-changing hearing aid. Whisper also launched its AI-based hearing aid product. The Whisper hearing aid uses advanced sound separation and AI techniques to process sound in real time and optimize it for the user’s surroundings. Whisper relies in part an auxiliary device, the “Whisper Brain,” to deliver advanced real time sound processing power and intelligence.
MKW is helping Whisper build its foundational patent portfolio in the U.S. and around the world. So far, we have prosecuted two U.S. patents to issuance covering fundamental aspects of Whisper’s technology. Read more about MKW’s patent prosecution practice here.
