He emails, “Hykso has developed boxing-focused, smartphone-connected sensors that track each punch, calculate its speed and intensity, and recognize its specific type. We started selling sensors in mid-February and sold $20K that month, $100K in March, and $150K in April. We’re focused on growth now, and our vision is to create the Nike of athletic-performance tracking.”
