ReST is an Atlanta-based developer of smart mattresses and proprietary sleep wellness technologies and innovations. Their mission is to perfect sleep experience by tracking sleeping data and automatically responding to that data to help people sleep better. Located in the Westside Neighborhood of Atlanta, the company resides within a severely distressed community and aligns with Atlanta Emerging Markets, Inc.’s efforts in supporting healthy neighborhoods and creating new jobs. The Advantage Loan fund was used by ReST to raise their capital growth within their company.
