A startup in stealth mode called Wonder has announced that it has raised a Series A round of funding. The sartup from Los Angeles said the round was led by Grishin Robotics and TCL Communication Holdings Limited.
Wander has an eclectic mix of investors to say the least; House of Cards star and Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey, footballers and even mega superstar Shakira have all invested in them. They are also backed by investor like 8VC and Greycroft Partners.
The startup has disclosed that it had previously raised an ‘undisclosed amount of seed funding’ in July 2016. TechCrunch reports that Wander has so far secured about 14 million dollars in to date.
TechCrunch reveals that Wander is developing a new age, “VR-ready” gaming hardware in secret (stealth mode).
While the startup is stirring up attention with interviews given to the likes of TechCrunch and Forbes, what their product is or even looks like has been kept under tight wraps. The CEO of Wander is Andy Kleinman, whose previous startup was a mobile apps company named MobLabs.
Wonder has described its product as a “new type of portable hardware device that might be considered a hybrid between a powerful smartphone and a gaming console.” The company is aiming to provide a host of exclusive software and services for optimal user experience and hopes to provide concrete details to the world in the very near future.
