026: Julian Jagtenberg, Founder of Somnox, Welcome to The Future of Sleep: The World's First “The Sleep Robot”


Julian brings a passion for (soft) robotics to his role as Chief Marketing Officer and co-founder of Somnox, the world’s first sleep robot. Created to fight insomnia, help the sleep-deprived, and start a global sleep revolution, Somnox was borne from Julian’s desire to help his mother manage and overcome insomnia without the need for prescription medication. As an industrial design engineer, Julian is on a mission to develop soft robotics to contribute to health and well-being. With multiple designs and engineering awards, including the James Dyson Award, Philips Innovation Award, Robotdalen Innovation Award, and Sprout’s 25 under 25, Julian passionately believes in the ability of robotics to help humans live happier and healthier lives. He graduated with honors from the Delft University of Technology with a degree in Industrial Design, and also holds a minor in Robotics from the Delft Biorobotics Lab – 3mE (Faculty of Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering).
