Oros says it has received $14.5 million in a Series A funding round led by Elizabeth Street Ventures and Enlightenment Capital. Oros, based in Portland, Oregon, is an American start-up that leverages emerging NASA technology to develop advanced thermal materials and high-performance, low-impact apparel. The brand has developed a new lightweight insulated material that incorporates a suite of patents and exclusive rights to underlying NASA intellectual property. The material is set to make its debut in a new performance apparel collection in 2022. The recent capital raised is meant to allow Oros to further refine this new material, create new apparel products, and invest in a manufacturing facility outside Boston. In addition to the Series A round, Oros has announced the appointment of Rachael Ulman, a venture partner at Elizabeth Street Ventures and the founder and CEO of 27 Edge, to its board of directors.
