Mightier Raises $6.6 Million Series A for Games that Help Kids Stay Calm

May 23, 2019

MIGHT AS WELL: Mightier, a Boston-based provider of games that help children ages 6 to 14 learn to stay calm when under stress, has raised $6.6 million in a Series A funding round. Foxkiser led the round with participation from Asset Management Ventures, FundRx, Founder Collective, Slow Ventures and Project 11.

Founded in 2016, Mightier offers a heart rate band alongside its games, which children wear as they play. The device monitors their heart rate and adjusts the difficulty of the game accordingly. The game gets harder as their heart rate increases, and easier as it decreases.

The company claims to have helped over 3,000 families with its library of 25 video games, according to a statement Tuesday. Its customer base has grown tenfold in the last six months. The company has now raised over $10.1 million in venture funding.

Founder Collective’s past education investments include ClassTag, Edmit and Tutorspree. Slow Ventures has previously invested in Frank, MathCrunch and Campus Job.
