About our project

The problem we solve: Globally, we face a mental health epidemic within the COVID pandemic. Out of fear, individuals are not getting the help they need to avoid exposure to COVID. As a result, organizations are redirecting funds towards digital health solutions to address pain management, mental wellness and addiction so people have the help they need when they need it.

About our solution: Rooted in data and analytics, our clinically designed mindfulness platform allows us to white label a mobile app and customizes the experience for the client's wellness population with medical-grade mindfulness meditations, key contacts, mood tracking, 2-way communication messaging and more. Our AI smart platform then personalizes the experience at the user level to optimize the experience. Our 2015-filed patent (which is pending) describes this machine learning element in greater detail. Our growing library of meditations exceeds 500 with content that spans kids, teens, vets, patients, medical providers and employees.

Progress to date:

Milestones Achieved

  • Raised $780K in pre-seed so far

  • 3 Referral / Resellers Agreements representing nearly 2,000 organizations 
  • Revenue generating in market B2C app
  • World-class advisory board with Chief Medical and Chief Digital Officers who have just begun referring large business opportunities

How We Help Patients

Meditation is scientifically proven to reduce stress and anxiety, assist with sleep, and reduce chronic pain. By delivering mindfulness meditations digitally through doctors and employers, we will enable the widespread adoption of mindfulness as a solution to physical and emotional pain and reduce dependency on prescription drugs. When we meditate, we relax the mind and body which changes our physiology. As our physiology improves, we boost our immune system which improves longevity and quality of life. Unlike other meditation apps, we co-create our meditations in partnership with medical providers making our meditations disease state-specific and evidence-based. We leverage best practices in hypnotherapy to ensure every word directs listeners towards the positive wellness outcomes they need following a clinically designed process. We offer the highest quality, most effective meditations ion on the market today and are in 2 clinical studies to prove it.

How We Help Physicians

40% of patients are not compliant with doctor orders. 50% of patients misuse their prescription medication. This strains the healthcare system and contributes to physician burnout which impacts 40% of healthcare providers. Our platform serves as a "doctor in your pocket" with meditations, reminders, and information that will improve patient engagement and compliance. Our app leads to patients becoming more proactive about managing their health and assists in situations such as pre-surgery anxiety, post-surgery comfort, sleep and more.

How We Help Hospitals

We provide a sustainable, scalable and affordable solution to combat the mental health crisis. Compounded by COVID, 53% of adults are struggling with mental health issues. 11% of adults and 25% of young adults have contemplated suicide as a result of COVID. Overdose are up 42%. The number of Americans reporting anxiety symptoms is three times the number at this same time last year, according to the CDC, and several studies have shown that the pandemic has hit Black people and other people of color the hardest. The pandemic has also taken its toll on caregivers, according to the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association. The national analysis of at least 6.7 million caregivers insured by the association found that 26% of unpaid caregivers trying to balance work and family due to Covid-19 are feeling more stress and have poorer physical health than before the pandemic. While the world struggles to manage the initial waves of death and disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, there is mounting evidence accumulating that "a second wave" linked to rising rates of mental health and substance use disorders could be building, according to an article published Monday in the medical journal JAMA.

How We Help Partners

We help our partners show their employees, patients & family members that they care about mental health and wellness for fraction of the cost of in-person programs and services. By doing this, we build brand equity and goodwill for our partners. By offering 24/7 anytime anywhere for when people need it most, we reinforce employee and patient intimacy and loyalty.

This is not yet on our product roadmap.

How we will use the funds raised

Our priority is to advance our machine learning capability and in-house analytics function.

Thank You

Having lost two mothers to mental illness and opioid overdose at age 23 and 36, I decided to take a radical pivot in my career from being an insurance executive to being a health tech pioneer. In 2014, I made a commitment to spend the rest of my life developing innovative tools that alleviate the suffering that stems from mental illness and physical pain. What initially started as a holistic wellness center evolved into the Cloud 9 platform which allows me to scale teaching mindfulness as a  way to train the brain to heal the body. I was gifted with the intelligence, passion, creativity, and leadership skills to reach 1 billion lives and more, and that is what I intend to do with the help of other like-minded individuals that want to leave this world a better place.
