Tales from Startup Alley: Lark Ascends

Lark, the morning bird, is a great name for a product that gently wakes you up. I stopped by Lark’s TechCrunch Disrupt booth to talk with Julia Hu, their young, accomplished (she’s a serial entrepreneur), and enthusiastic CEO.

Chatting over cupcakes with Julia, I learned that the Lark team is very serious about giving overworked and stressed couples a good night’s sleep.

Instead of using archaic alarm technology, Lark customers wear a gentling vibrating wristwatch-like device. The iPhone interface is where you set your wakeup time. The idea of course is that each partner can be gently roused to consciousness without disturbing the sleep of your bed-mate.Related articles
