“…the Nimbus Portfolio, a hardware-focused segment of the Vegas Tech Fund, Zappos founder Tony Hsieh’s $50 million early stage investment vehicle. Nimbus has jumped into hardware investing without much fanfare, writing checks to a dozen or so startups, with more on the way. They range from a Star Trek tricorder-inspired mobile medical scanner (Scanadu) to a system of drop-off locations for package deliveries (Swapbox) and even a souped-up personal scooter device (WHILL).”
