    ◎冥想程式Calm今年2月募資8800萬美元後,現在有更多消息。VC公司Lightspeed提供了2700萬美元投資Calm,計劃用於擴展「自助式課程、延伸套路、放鬆音樂、呼吸練習、兒童故事和名人讀物」。

    ◎放鬆音樂是Calm進入這領域的原因,也是大型音樂串流媒體服務及少數AI音樂新創公司正在深耕的領域。

    ◎目前為止,Calm已籌集1.41億美元的資金,TechCrunch聲稱其目前已獲利,年收入約為1.5億美元。

    詳細內文:

    We've written about meditation startup Calm several times this year: for example when it raised an $88m funding round in February (an announcement that made us wonder whether Spotify would be doing more with meditation), and when it was the exclusive distribution partner for a new album by artist Moby the following month.

    Now there's some more news – more money flowing in to the company's coffers, courtesy of VC firm Lightspeed. It told TechCrunch that it has invested $27m in Calm at a $1bn valuation, which the company plans to use to expand into more "self-help masterclasses, stretching routines, relaxing music, breathing exercises, stories for children and celebrity readings that lull you to sleep".

    You'll have noted the 'relaxing music' part of that – it's what brings Calm into territory also being mined by the big music-streaming services, as well as a handful of AI-music startups.

    Calm has raised $141m of funding in total so far, with TechCrunch claiming that it's now profitable and doing around $150m of annual revenues.
