A new company announced their launch and Series A funding. Esper (esper.io)is building a platform for android device deployment and application management. Not just for Android phones either. The Esper founders are betting that Android will be the dominant form for embedded devices in both headless and IoT deployments.
The CEO/co-founder of Esper, Yadhu Gopalan knows a little something about this, as he was one of the key people behind Microsoft’s Windows CE embedded program. Yadhu was also a leader of Amazon’s Go Store program prior to Esper.
We had a chance to sit down with Yadhu and talk about what raising their $7.5m series A means for Esper and where they are going.
