AcousticSheep Named Small Business of the Year by the Consumer Technology Association

The Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™, formerly the Consumer Electronics Association®, announced the winners of its fourth annual Innovation Entrepreneur Awards. AcousticSheep was honored with the award for Small Business of the Year.

These prestigious awards were launched in 2012 by CTA’s flagship magazine, It Is Innovation (i3) and the CTA Small Business Council. The awards recognize entrepreneurs and businesses with revenues under $30 million for the contributions they make to the U.S. economy. Each year, a panel of judges recognize one executive, a small business and a startup company.

At this year’s CEA’s Innovate! conference in New York City, the IEA honorees were selected by a distinguished panel of media and industry professionals, then announced during a keynote luncheon on Tuesday November 10th.

AcousticSheep won the very prestigious Small Business of the Year award. As a family physician, AcousticSheep CEO Dr. Wei-shin Lai, struggled to fall back asleep after late night patient phone calls. She tried listening to relaxing music in bed, but there were no headphones or earbuds comfortable enough for sleeping. With no product on the market that fit her needs, she worked with her husband, Jason Wolfe, to create a unique solution, SleepPhones. The company strives to create a world of happy, healthy, well-rested people with their ‘sleep category’ of headphones. The company also has an app with soothing sounds and the next app in development senses when you’re restless and works harder to help you sleep.

A distinguished panel of media and industry judges selected the Innovation Entrepreneur Awards honorees:

Jim Barry – CTA’s Digital Answer Man
Gregory Borchardt – Caerus Ventures
Trace Cohen – LaunchIt
Frank Gruber –
Ximena Hartsock – Phone2Action
Robert Heiblim – BlueSalve
Lawrence Richenstein – Peak Ventures
Paul M. Sabbah – Stamford International
Eric C. Schwartz – NAPCO Media
Gary Yacoubian - SVS | Specialty Technologies
