Portfolio Company Spotlight: Healium
Healium is an augmented and virtual reality treatment designed to help people relax and reduce stress. The technology blends storytelling, neuroscience, and game design to promote self-management of stress, sleep, and human performance. It is designed to work as an app or with wearable technology such as googles or EEG headbands.
Traction for Healium continues to grow exponentially, with the company regularly in the news as a key meditation tool. The NFL Players’ Association recently awarded Healium $50,000 for winning their annual pitch competition. The company also signed contracts with one of the largest airlines in the world, as well as a premier Midwestern university, which will soon be offering Healium’s services to their teams. Healium was also written up in the Scholarly Journal of Psychology and Behavioral Sciences, their sixth peer-reviewed journal.
What we love about them: "We love Healium’s innovative approach to mental health, infusing technology and giving people the opportunity to better themselves on their own time. Sarah, the CEO, is an absolute go getter, and continues to impress us with the partnerships she’s developed along with her passion and unrelenting determination.”
