Cisco purchased the telecom software company Broadsoft for $1.9 billion. Broadsoft is a trusted cloud innovator and market leader committed to redefining the future of work. Broadsoft provides a comprehensive mobile-integrated and completely open communication suite for businesses, with carrier-class reliability and security. Stay tuned to see if they merge the Broadsoft tools into the Cisco platform.

WeWork, the famous coworking space valued at $20 billion, has acquired Flatiron School, a coding bootcamp that offers both online and offline classes to people who want a career in tech. The Flatiron courses will now be offered to WeWork members and employees to expand their knowledge for future opportunities.

There's a new mattress startup ready to compete with Casper. KUTSON is the only mattress-in-a-box brand that offers dual-side customization and at-home modification capabilities to meet the comfort preference of every sleeper. The KUTSON mattress can achieve nine different comfort levels, and wants to ditch the "one-size-fits-all" mattress mentality.
