Aliph was founded in 1999 by Alex Asseily and Hosain Rahman, two young entrepreneurs who met as Stanford undergrads. The pair shared a belief that voice would be the dominant interface for mobile devices and that creating a noise-free environment was critical to delivering an improved mobile communications experience. They enlisted Greg Burnett from Lawrence Livermore National Labs and began building a team of recognized experts in mobile communications and consumer electronics products - spanning Apple Computer, Palm and Motorola, among others - to achieve the company's goals. Since 2002, Aliph's technology has been optimized for DARPA to maximize communications clarity in the most hostile conditions. Headquartered in Brisbane, Calif., Aliph is funded by Mayfield and private investors. To purchase Jawbone, please go to http://www.jawbone.com.
