Before Taysom Hill gets ready to battle for the New Orleans Saints' starting quarterback role, he will fight to protect kids from screen-time addiction with Gabb Wireless.
Gabb Wireless™, the first and largest company to provide a safe cellular network and phones designed for kids, announced that it had closed a $14 million round of funding. Sandlot Partners and New Orleans Saints quarterback, Taysom Hill, led the Series A round for Gabb Wireless.
HILL ON WHY HE INVESTED
In the Gabb Wireless announcement, Hill revealed his personal reason for becoming an investor.
“As an investor, Gabb checked all the boxes with its impressive growth, founding team, and total addressable market,” said Taysom Hill.
The Saints quarterback continued, “But so much more than that for me is the emotional side of the investment. I love the idea that we can help build something to help save kids in an area that has so much need and demand.
My wife Emily and I try to be pretty selective of who we tie our brand to, and when considering the chance to invest and partner with Gabb, it was a no-brainer for us and something that we are extremely excited about.”
SANDLOT ON PARTNERSHIP
