Mindset is a biosensing platform for human performance.

Our first product is a brain-sensing headphone that improves your concentration at work. This will allow us to collect the largest labelled EEG database in the world and enable consumer biosensing to scale.

Mindset lets you master your mind.

We’re starting by improving concentration.

 
 
 

The Story

 

 
 

Before Mindset, Jacob spent several years researching the cognitive psychology of learning, and wrote a book on student study habits. What he found was simple: for most people, their limiting factor is their ability to sit down and engage in deep, sustained focus. 

We waste over 20,000 hours during our careers distracted in the workplace. It’s no wonder that 29% of people identify difficulty focusing as their #1 issue at work: attention is the new currency, and we’re more distracted than ever.

We believe that with the right mindset, human potential is nearly limitless. However, if you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it. Mindset is a biosensing platform for human performance - we give people the means to measure, improve, and ultimately master their minds.

Attention is the new currency, 

and we're more distracted than ever.

Our first product is a brain-sensing headphone that improves your concentration. Embedded EEG sensors measure your level of focus and use music to guide you into a flow state. Research shows that over time this feedback conditions your subconscious to tune out distractions, permanently improving your concentration. 

Mindset lets you master your mind. We're starting by improving concentration. 

 
 
 

Competitive Advantage

 

 

Mindset's form factor and application make it possible to overcome the 4 limitations that prevent neurotech from scaling. The unique dataset we produce is a scalable, defensible competitive advantage. 

Simply put: Mindset enables biosensing to scale.

Within 1 month of shipping, Mindset will own the world’s largest labelled EEG database. Leveraging AI, Mindset will measure more neural states, with higher accuracy, through more discrete form factors to any other company.

Mindset will enable the future of human-computer interaction: products that respond in real-time to a user’s mental state. Our first application is a neuro-adaptive music platform for improving concentration. Later applications will span online education, e-sports and gaming, AR/VR, and mental health.
