Who We Are
We see a world where meditation is a fundamental part of every individual's daily routine. A world where everyone takes a moment for their mind each day - and because of this, you and the people around you become more present, more grounded, and quite simply, happier. This is the world we are building.
We are a tight-knit team of motivated, health-conscious, bright individuals that are determined to make this vision come true. We bring together backgrounds in Education, Consumer Product, Behavioral Science, Technology, Sports, and Music to create a diverse and collaborative problem-solving environment. Above all, we value collaboration, respect, and determination.

What We Are Building
Have you tried meditation before, but had trouble sticking to it? Do you remember feeling like you were not doing it right? You are not alone! Learning to meditate is hard; it takes practice. But it doesn't have to be a chore. We are building the product to make meditation more tangible, more practical, and more engaging so that it can work in everyone's daily life.
We have developed a unique physical meditation tool combined with a personalized learning system to make meditation work for everyone. Core's device sits out on your nightstand or desk, not thrown in a drawer and forgotten, to serve as your daily reminder to continue your practice. When you pick the device up it will guide you into your meditation using a combination of unique forms of feedback, content, and live instructors. Using advanced biosensors in the device, Core provides you with insights about your nervous system during your meditation to close the feedback loop. Over time, Core learns from your body, mind, and your practice to provide completely personalized recommendations and tips to accelerate your mastery of meditation.
Where We Are
We've been testing and iterating for years, refining the product experience to make it stand out above the rest. Now we are ready to scale our entire team to get this product to market as fast as possible. This will be the most exciting and most critical time for Core. With this comes the opportunity for you to make a huge impact on Core, Core's customers, and the future of meditation.
