Weber acquires smart cooking startup June – TechCrunch
Outdoor cooking industry leader and famed Kettle grill-maker Weber has acquired June, the smart cooking startup founded in 2013 by Matt Van Horn and Nikhil Bhogal. Weber had already teamed up with June, with the startup providing the technology and expertise behind its Weber Connect smart grilling platform. That includes both the Weber Connect Smart Grilling Hub, which adds connected smart grill features to any grill, and the built-in smart cooking features on its SmokeFire line of wood pellet grills. '”“His energy and, and ability to see things often before other people, it blew my mind,” Van Horn continued. “Obviously why Nikhil and I started June was that we love food, and we love cooking,” Van Horn said.
