Who We Are

We see a world where meditation is a fundamental part of every individual's daily hygiene. A world where the people around you have cultivated the capacity to become their best selves in the same way they cultivated better teeth.  

This is the world we are building.

Core Wellness is an early stage startup made of a tight-knit team of bright individuals motivated to make this vision a reality. We bring together expertise in Education, Consumer Hardware, Behavioral Science, Technology, and Music to create a diverse and collaborative problem solving environment. Above all we value collaboration, transparency, and determination. 


What We're Building

Core Hardware

Core Hardware

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 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 finally closing the feedback loop.  Over time, Core learns from your body, mind, and your practice to provide tips and recommendations on how to accelerate your mastery of meditation. 


Where We Are

We have 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.

We are currently part of the Bolt Hardware Accelerator in San Francisco with a dynamic, creative community of hardware entrepreneurs.  We also have special access to Autodesk's Pier 9 Workshop complete with a world class CNC shop, wood shop, metal shop, 3D Printers and more - it's any maker's dreamland.
