While at HBS, Chad and Eleanor Laurans (MBA ’06) co-founded SimpliSafe, a no-contract, easily-installed, wireless home security system. Chad designed the original product himself and grew the company under the radar of long-established competitors. The company grew with only a single angel investment in 2006 until receiving $57M in 2014 from Sequoia in a Series A funding.
