Our client is on a mission to help people everywhere discover their mind's limitless potential.
The ability to write well and speak eloquently deeply affects your trajectory in life, regardless of profession. Unfortunately, many people leave high school and even college extremely unprepared in these areas. Their flagship mobile app teaches concrete cognitive skills through 35 games (with more on the way). The app has over 25 million downloads and has received numerous accolades, including Apple’s App of the Year award.
But the app was just the beginning. Soon, we’re launching a meditation app that will focus on improving other areas of the mind, including stress management, sleep quality, and much more. We’ve created a truly personalized experience that makes meditation more accessible to millions of people, including those who previously felt that meditation didn’t work for them.
