Lifestyle Wearable Thync Closes USD 13M to Help Users Alter their Moods


A headgear born out of neuroscience, named Thync, has raised USD 13 million in Series A funding round led by Khosla Ventures. The company uses neurosignaling algorithms– waveforms and electric signals to shift and optimize people’s state of mind in areas such as energy, calm, and focus.

“We created Thync to help people better access the power of their mind,” said Thync CEO and co-founder Isy Goldwasser. “We believe that when you conquer your mind, you can conquer your day.”

Los Gatos-based, Thync was launched in 2011 by Dr. Jamie Tyler to target and optimize neural pathways and brain circuits for personal benefit. The company’s wearable product will be available next year. The wearables market is projected to top more than USD 7 billion in 2015, with an estimated 300 million wearables to be shipped.
