DENVER -- Toronto-based Muse® by Interaxon Inc., a leading consumer neurotech company and the creator of Muse®: the brain sensing headband, today announced the opening of its second office at Catalyst HTI.
With the acquisition of Meditation Studio, a top-rated and award-winning app based in Denver, the company has decided to partner with Catalyst HTI for its U.S. office.
The decision to be part of this health technology innovation hub stems from a shared ethos and mission to drive real, lasting change that supports people in living healthier, more connected lives, Muse said.
“We deeply believe in the transformative power of meditation and are on a mission to connect people to a mindfulness practice in a modern and approachable way,” said Cyd Crouse, CMO of Muse® and co-founder of Meditation Studio.
“The decision to open an office at Catalyst HTI and be surrounded by thought leaders who share a similar vision was an easy choice for us.”
Catalyst HTI was founded as a result of the need to integrate the healthcare industry and harness the power of this community to build innovative and lasting change.
Relevant stakeholders from across the health, wellness, and healthcare industries work side-by-side to create, develop, refine and bring to market cutting-edge innovations that will fundamentally transform healthcare.
“Muse has empowered people around the world to improve their understanding of their own brain, and access learning tools to improve their meditation practice,” said Mike Biselli, Catalyst HTI president.
“As the first neurotech and meditation company to join Catalyst HTI, we’re thrilled to have them join us and will continue to build a supportive ecosystem focused on reimagining healthcare.”
Located in Denver’s River North District (RiNo), Catalyst HTI is a 180,000-square-foot industry integrator designed to bring health-tech startups and established health care entities together under one roof.
The building covers an entire block, located on the west side of Brighton Boulevard between 35th and 36th Streets. Catalyst HTI’s goal is to bring together private enterprise (startups to Fortune 100), government, academic and non-profit organizations with healthcare providers and payers to accelerate innovation and drive real, lasting change.
