Carl Pei announced his departure from OnePlus in October last year to start its new venture. Nothing was announced on January 27, though the company is yet to unveil its first device. The reason, as cited by Pei to leave OnePlus was so that he can be a lot more creative with what he chooses to spend my time on. “OnePlus is a really large company, compared to where we were when we were just started. And once the company is larger, you’re kind of set in your strategy.”
Nothing received $15 million in Series A funding from Alphabet Inc’s venture capital unit, GV Team, previously known as Google Ventures.
The company has already completed a $7 million round in seed investment financing in December 2020 that came from some of the top names in the tech industry including former Apple vice-president Tony Fadell, Casey Neistat (YouTuber), Kevin Lin (Co-founder of Twitch), Steve Huffman (CEO of Reddit), and Josh Buckley (CEO of Product Hunt). Kunal Shah, who is the founder of CRED has invested in Nothing as well.
