A Passionate Team
The Exist Tribe Team represents concerned individuals who understand the seriousness of sleep health and want to find a solution.
Robert Sweetman, Founder and CEO
"I saw a problem with sleep deprivation in the military."
"I went back to school to solve the problem."
"I invented and engineered the Restore."
As a boy, Robert was athletic, energetic and entrepreneurial. At six years old, he used a gum-ball machine to start his first business. In high school, Robert took up wrestling among other sports, because he enjoyed pushing himself and competing. Before he left, he has won the state championship in wrestling (twice), all-state in cross country (twice) and received a tri-athlete award.
In 2010, he enlisted in the Navy and within two years, he had made it into the SEAL teams. During his service in the military, he learned all about sleep deprivation and the limits of human existence; something that revealed a widespread existential crisis caused by the modern world. Following the military, Robert decided he wanted to bring sleep technology to the world. He started the company Existential Technologies to do just that
Every first world country is in a state of sleep epidemic and poor sleep is linked to all-cause mortality. Robert learned of these tragic facts and dedicated his life to changing these statistics. Since then, he founded Exist Tribe to find technology solutions for sleep health.
