Our $3M Seed Round 🎉🎉

Today, we are excited to announce our new round of funding to accelerate our mission of helping first responders proactively manage and maintain their mental health through real-time incident data.

The round took place approximately eight months after our pre-seed round, bringing our total funding to $3.6M.

Over our first year, we have come to realize how big of a problem we are solving. Our first announcement in February last year – just a six months after founding the company – was followed by an incredible response from the public safety community. Since then, we’ve seen 600% organic growth in our agency partners - spanning across some of the largest states in the country, fostered powerful relationships with leading communications providers like Motorola Solutions, SunRidge Systems, and Versaterm, and expanded our content library of high-impact micro sessions designed just for first responders.

"Our goal is for first responders to become their own therapist, learn how to recognize their own distorted thought patterns and move towards happier, healthier thoughts."

MindBase is unlike anything people have used before – we are creating new user experiences and innovative features that help protect those that protect us. Our goal is for first responders to become their own therapist, learn how to recognize their own distorted thought patterns and move towards happier, healthier thoughts. Building something like this is not a walk in the park, but surely one of the most exciting challenges we could imagine.

In the last 7 months, we’ve been fortunate to have been joined by 4 amazing individuals, who have all made a lasting impact on the foundation of our product and business. Together, we've built a culture where it's possible to truly own your work and collaborate seamlessly in a remote-first environment. These key hires align our vision and position MindBase to reach it's full potential between growth and customer support.

Rolling out in 2022

The new funding presents us with incredible resources to continue building a world-class product, team, and accommodate the demand we are seeing. What we have in store for the remainder of the the year is ambitious and will push our team in ways that can only be truly understood by 6-year old on a rollercoaster (or anyone who's been part of a startup).

Every public safety agency has a dispatch system, however, its primary focus is cataloging activity. When you treat incidents as indicators for behavioral health, data can save lives. This is the standard we are pioneering with MindBase, empowering every agency to provide the right support, at the right time, to their people. We’ll continue investing heavily in our core product to extend our unique product foundation that will stand the test of time. For now, we are keeping our heads down to build the best possible technology for mission critical teams that improves mental health accessibility at the individual level and provides agencies the tools and resources to enhance critical areas like recruiting, retention, and performance.

We couldn't do it without you

We could not have come this far without customers and partners like you, and we want to say Thank You! Your valuable partnership and support has helped us develop powerful software and gain the momentum we are beyond grateful to be achieving.

We now live in a day and age where it has never been more difficult to be a first responder then any other period in history. Our work has never been more critical and we're fortunate to be taking this journey with all of you. It’s been an exhilarating ride so far, and we can’t wait to write the next chapter in the story of MindBase.

Also, we're hiring! :)
