We’re a London-based tech company on a mission to remove barriers between people and technology.
To do this, we’re crafting intuitive, flawlessly connected products that improve our lives without getting in the way. No confusing tech-speak. No silly product names. Just artistry, passion and trust. And products we’re proud to share with our friends and family. Simple.
Because beautiful tech shouldn’t be complicated.
This is where our journey began, where we pressed a giant reset button and founded Nothing.
We raised $7m in seed financing from friends and investors who share our mission, including Tony Fadell, Casey Neistat, Kevin Lin and Steve Huffman.
We unveiled Nothing’s mission. To remove barriers between people and technology, and create a seamless digital future.
GV joined the Nothing mission and invested $15 million in our Series A round, propelling us forward on our journey.
We unveiled Teenage Engineering as a founding partner of Nothing, with Tom and Jesper being the visionaries behind our product designs.
Our first community funding round only took 54 seconds, making it the fastest project to surpass $1M via crowdfunding in Europe.
Concept 1 embodies our design principles, which have guided the development of our first products over the past several months.
Mark your calendars. 27 July 2021 is the day we are unveiling ear (1).
StockX sells the first out of 100 limited units of ear (1) for over 1,000 USD.
This is it: ear (1) is here. Raw beauty meets precise sound for a pure sound experience.
Nothing ear (1) is officially carbon neutral. This is just the start of our journey towards becoming a carbon neutral company.
We teased, then introduced the ear (1) black edition. Accepting cryptocurrency payment became the first step into integrating Web3 in our future ecosystem. And our first ever pop-up retail space, the Nothing Kiosk, sprung up in the heart of London.
Co-led by EQT Ventures and C Ventures, this funding will fuel the building of our product ecosystem. And it’s also going to help grow our new London Design Hub, led by ex-Dyson Head of Design Adam Bates.
Phone (1) is finally launched in the Nothing Event: Return to instinct. We invited our friends and community to a live-streamed party in London to celebrate our most important product. Broadcast live and viewed by over 2M people.
We released our third product, and our most advanced sound experience yet. Ear (stick).
Our first ever retail store opened in Soho, London’s vibrant cultural hub. To celebrate opening weekend, we dropped the #the100 laser engraved limited edition Ear (stick). Exclusively available at Nothing Store Soho.
A new milestone. We launched Ear (2), the first Nothing second-generation product. A mighty refinement in sound, clarity, and everything in between. Still wonderfully original.
Amidst crossing the 1.5 million product sold mark, we closed a $96M financing round, led by Highland Europe, with participation from Google Ventures, EQT Ventures, C Capital and Swedish House Mafia amongst others.
We launched our first second-generation smartphone, Phone (2). Our most powerful and premium move yet featuring the new Glyph Interface, Nothing OS 2.0 and a flagship camera experience. To celebrate, we ran a series of Nothing Drops events. The first locations in the world where people could buy Phone (2) in-person.

Making better products is at the heart of our mission, and that doesn’t just mean better looking or better to use. It means doing better. And that starts with our first product, Ear (1).
First, we worked with internationally recognised third parties to assess Ear (1)’s environmental impact. To completely neutralise its 1.78kg carbon footprint, we started by offsetting the electricity used in the manufacturing process. Then, we purchased carbon credits from Verified Carbon Standard (managed by Verra) – a globally recognised standard for certifying carbon emissions reductions – to offset the remaining emissions.
We want to keep going beyond having a carbon neutral product. This is just the first step in our journey towards becoming a carbon neutral company.
