Neurable’s BCI has the potential to solve a range of vexing issues — from healthcare to daily life. BCI integrated into our devices, and a critical part of our everyday experience was once the stuff of science fiction — thanks to Neurable, that dream will soon be a reality.”

Collaborative Efforts and Future Aspirations

Founded as a University of Michigan spinout, Neurable has continually sought to collaborate with leading entities in both the private and public sectors. Following its Series A funding in 2020, Neurable partnered with consumer wearable companies, including headphone company Master & Dynamic, to embed EEG sensors into everyday technologies.

The partnership is set to introduce the first-ever BCI-enabled headphones, the MW75 Neuro, marking a significant milestone in consumer-accessible neurotechnology. Additionally, following Series A, Neurable collaborated with the Air Force Research Lab’s 711 Human-Performance Wing to validate and refine its technology for enhancing human performance.

Building on this successful collaboration, Neurable secured $5 million in contracts from the Department of Defense to further develop this cutting-edge human technology to support soldier health and performance.

Adam Molnar, cofounder and vice president of strategic partnerships at Neurable, shared his excitement about the partnerships, stating, “We’re extremely proud to work with our partners, which include some of the world’s best in consumer technology like Master & Dynamic as well as the very servicemen and women who make sacrifices on a daily basis for the overall security of our nation. This is just the beginning. We can’t wait to show you what’s coming next.”

As Neurable continues to push the boundaries of what is possible with neurotechnology, its recent funding round not only validates its past achievements but also sets the stage for an exciting future of innovation and widespread application of BCI technology.
