Building a Better Brain

Helping Everyone Optimize Their Brain Health

July 23, 2021

Nurosene (CSE: MEND) is providing tools and technology to empower people to take ownership of their mental health. Using cutting edge AI, and implementing a scientifically guided mix of brain activities, diagnostics, and nutraceuticals, they are bringing better brain health to everyone. Their CEO, Ranj Bath, puts it best, “At Nurosene, we are on a mission to democratize mental health and empower our community of people around the world with access to tools typically found only in a clinical setting that will help to improve mental well-being.” This is an exciting mental health tech play; with cash on hand from their recent IPO, an NFL Star endorsement, powerful Mental Health Council including Olympian Michael Phelps, and massive market potential, we are looking at Nurosene to disrupt the entire space. 

 

Mental Health For The Win

Huge Opportunity – It is estimated that roughly 10% of the world’s population is affected by some kind of mental health issue. The opportunity for Nurosene lies in the percentage of people who don’t receive help (between 75%-85%) due to cost, stigma, or accessibility. Using their advanced technology and marketing strategy, they will be able to capitalize on that underserved population. 

Growing Market  – The global mobile health app market size is expected to reach $149.3 billion by 2028 and is projected to reach a CAGR of 17.7%, while the global dietary supplement market is expected to reach $298 billion by 2027. Nurosene is well positioned to ride the growth of both markets, while helping solve an important problem by delivering mental health support via their app and their line of supplements.   

Strong Team  – Nurosene is carried by team of highly skilled professionals as well as guided by a strong team of advisors and board members and executives, including the Former Head of E-Commerce at Apple and the Former Director of the Italian Medicines Agency (AIFA).

Room to Grow – Though they initially sought to raise between $5-$8 million, the IPO was oversubscribed, and Nurosene was able to raise $9.2 million total. “The reason that we really IPO’d is to give us more access to capital,” CEO Ranj Bath told the publication BetaKit. “It gives us that room to grow, and [allows us] to leverage public money for things like to start building M&A, which is going to be an aggressive push for us.”

 

Mental Health for Everyone!

Nurosene (CSE: MEND) was founded in 2019 and launched in 2020 by Daniel Gallucci, a 20 year veteran functional neurologist and researcher who specializes in working with high performance professional and amateur athletes, as well as patients with complex neurological conditions. His vision to democratize mental wellness via mobile application–while not necessarily new–is proving to be a disruptive force in the industry. Only a year after its inception, Nurosene IPO’d on the CSE for $9.2 million; an oversubscription more than one million dollars above the high point of their proposed range. It’s clear to us that Nurosene has legs.

 

Nurosene’s approach to mental health is different from the majority of their competitors. Rather than focusing on just one part of brain health like supplements (Bulletproof) or meditation (Calm), they are tackling the problem from multiple angles. Nurosene calls it their 4×4 approach;  they focus on encouraging 4 actionable strategies: (movement, brain, nutrition, and recovery) with solutions aimed at targeting 4 parts of the human body. This approach was developed and validated through decades of clinical experience and research by the Co-Founder himself, Daniel Gallucci. 

This is where the Nuro app’s functionality comes into play. Everyday users will be able to download the Android/iOS app for free, as accessibility is fundamental to Nurosene’s mission, while there will be a premium SaaS model for recreational and professional athletes. Revenue will be generated through sponsorship and nutraceutical sales. 

Upon downloading the app, users will be able to choose programs and activities designed to stimulate the brain. They are focused on implemented, cutting edge AI that will monitor vital stats via wearable devices, eye movement, and input tracking. Machine learning will enable the app to create more personalized programs, show progress, and recommend supplementation to further enhance brain health. 

 

 

This holistic approach to brain health is truly disruptive.

 No other mental health app is doing things quite like Nurosene. The guidance of their founders is evident in the mission to both bring mental health to everyone, as well as the blended approach to solving the actual problem. Other app-based companies like Headspace have raised an excess of $150 million dollars since their launch, but remain focused on one avenue of addressing brain health. Additionally, their subscription models greatly limit accessibility for the layman, and by not integrating multiple layers of diagnostics and tools for increasing well-being they’re leaving money on the table. Nurosene has devised a way to address mental health in a unique way, while helping underserved populations, and still bringing value to their shareholders. 

 

2020 Was Hard 

The day we stop talking about how 2020 wrecked our health mentally, physically, and emotionally can’t come quickly enough. Unfortunately, it isn’t here yet. Fortunately for Nurosene, the train-wreck that was 2020 has created a great opportunity to help the multitudes of people experiencing the negative effects of such a stressful year. 

The 30% increase in the number of adults reporting symptoms of depression/anxiety represents just how quickly mental health can shift in stressful situations. Nurosene’s strategy of positioning themselves as a holistic, accessible option for brain health will help capture this new percentage of the population, and keep them for the long-run as they experience the benefits of improved mental health. Coming out of the pandemic, there is a new awareness of how important a person’s mental state is, and we think Nurosene can capitalize on that trend. 

 

Tackling the Problem

The Dutch Connections Football Club (DCFC), a youth football (soccer for the Americans) club, is on board. The pilot program was designed collaboratively to focus on drills and activities that support the development of a young athlete’s brain health alongside their technical growth. 200 aspiring young athletes participate in cognitive drills that include saccades, VORs, and OPKs. The goal is to develop better brain function, cognitive flexibility, leadership skills, and reduce stress and anxiety. The data gathered from this program will be used to enhance future endeavors and promote Nurosene’s utility. 

Another factor to consider vis-a-vis athlete endorsements, is how prominent athlete mental health currently is in the media. Champion tennis player Naomi Osaka recently pulled out of Wimbledon, citing mental health as a critical reason for skipping press. Athletes around the world lauded Osaka for her strength and courage, as she highlighted an issue that had largely remained unaddressed. We think that Nurosene is primed to take advantage of the dialogue, and position themselves as a potential solution for the stressors of being a professional athlete. 

 

The Future is Bright for Nurosene

Nurosene has come a long way in just one year. From the initial founding in 2020, to an oversubscribed IPO in 2021, their progress so far is nothing to sneeze at. Their aggressive launch strategy has resulted in the timely release of their first two supplements (Nuro Drive and Nuro Restore) in the US; a great opening volley into a growing market valued at hundreds of billions of dollars. 

With hopefully high-level endorsements coming, Nurosene is well-positioned to execute on their mission of democratizing mental health and wellness. If you’re looking for a chance to get in at the beginning of a quickly growing mental health app company, you’ve found it. Don’t wait too long though; based on their pace of play, we see Nurosene taking off sooner than later.

DISCLAIMER

Who are we and what do we do? We are paid advertisers, also known as stock touts or stock promoters, who disseminate favorable information (the “Information”) about publicly traded companies (the “Profiled Issuers”). How is the Information published? We publish the Information on our Website, in newsletters, audio services, live interviews, featured “research” reports, on message boards and in email communications for specific time periods that are agreed upon between us and the Profiled Issuer or third party paying us. Our publication of the Information is known as a “Campaign”. Will everyone receive the Information at the same time? No. The Information may be sent to potential investors at different times that are minutes, hours, days or even weeks apart. How is a potential investor impacted if he receives the Information later than other investors? Typically, the trading volume and price of a Profiled Issuer’s securities increases after the Information is provided to the first group of investors. Therefore, the later an investor receives the Information, the more likely it is that he will suffer increased trading losses if he purchases the securities of a Profiled Issuer. What will happen to the shares that we hold during the Campaign? We will sell the shares we hold while we tell investors to purchase during the Campaign. What will happen when the Campaign ends? Most, if not all, of the Profiled Issuers are penny stocks that are illiquid and whose securities are subject to wide fluctuations in trading price and volume. During the Campaign the trading volume and price of the securities of each Profiled Issuer will likely increase significantly. When the Campaign ends, the volume and price of the Profiled Issuer will likely decrease dramatically. As a result, investors who purchase during the Campaign and hold shares of the Profiled Issuer when the Campaign ends will probably lose most, if not all, of their investment. Why do we publish only favorable Information? We only publish favorable information because we are compensated to publish only favorable information. Why don’t we publish negative Information?

What we do not do? We do not publish negative information about the Profiled Issuers. We do not verify or confirm any portion of the Information. We do not conduct any due diligence, nor do we research any aspect of the Information including the completeness, accuracy, truthfulness or reliability of the Information.

If we say we make “stock picks,” are those picks our own? No, they are not. We are compensated to advertise the securities we are told to advertise. What will happen if an investor relies on the Information?

Investors should not rely on the Information to make an investment decision. Who pays us to publish the Information? The source of our compensation varies depending upon the particular circumstances of the Campaign.

Why is this Disclaimer being provided? We are providing you with this disclaimer because we are publishing advertisements about penny stocks. Because we are paid to disseminate the Information to the public about securities, we are required by the securities laws including Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) and Rule 10b-5 thereunder, and Section 17(b) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), to specifically disclose our compensation as well as other important information, This information includes that we may hold, as well as purchase and sell, the securities of a Profiled Issuer before, during and after we publish favorable Information about the Profiled Issuer.

The anti-fraud provisions of federal and state securities laws require us to inform you that we may engage in buying and selling of Profiled Issuer’s securities before, during and after the Campaigns. What are other risks that investors should be aware of? Any investment in the Profiled Issuers involves a high degree of risk and uncertainty. The securities may be subject to extreme volume and price volatility, especially during the Campaigns. Favorable past performance of a Profiled Issuer does not guarantee future results. If you purchase the securities of the Profiled Issuers, you should be prepared to lose your entire investment. Some of the risks involved in purchasing securities of the Profiled Issuers include, but are not limited to the risks stated below.
  • We do not endorse, independently verify or assert the truthfulness, completeness, accuracy or reliability of the Information. We conduct no due diligence or investigation whatsoever of the Information or the Profiled Issuers and we do not receive any verification from the Profiled Issuer regarding the Information we disseminate.
  • If we publish any percentage gain of a Profiled Issuer from the previous day close in the Information, it is not and should not be construed as an indication that the future stock price or future operational results will reflect gains or otherwise prove to be advantageous to your investment.
  • The Information may contain statements asserting that a Profiled Issuer’s stock price has increased over a certain period of time which may reflect an arbitrary period of time, and is not predictive or of any analytical quality; as such, you should not rely upon the (favorable) Information in your analysis of the present or future potential of a Profiled Issuer or its securities.
  • The Information should not be interpreted in any way, shape, form or manner whatsoever as an indication of the Profiled Issuer’s future stock price or future financial performance.
  • You may encounter difficulties determining what, if any, portions of the Information are material or non-material, making it all the more imperative that you conduct your own independent investigation of the Profiled Issuer and its securities with the assistance of your legal, tax and financial advisor.
  • We or other stock promoters may receive free trading shares as compensation or we may acquire such shares in open market transactions before and during the Campaigns, and we may sell the shares we acquire at any time, even during the Campaigns while publishing the Favorable Information. When we sell the shares of the Profiled Issuers that we hold, the price at which investors can sell their shares will dramatically decrease and will likely cause investors to suffer trading losses.
  • We may sell securities of the Profiled Issuers for less than target prices set forth in the Information, and we may profit by selling our securities during the Campaigns while investors encounter losses.
  • When we acquire, purchase or sell the securities of the Profiled Issuers, it may (a) cause significant volatility in the Profiled Issuer’s securities; (b) cause temporary but unrealistic increases in volume and price of the Profiled Issuer’s securities; (c) if selling, cause the Profiled Issuer’s stock price to decline dramatically; and (d) permit us to make substantial profits while investors who purchase during the Campaign experience significant losses.
  • The securities of the Profiled Issuers are high risk, unstable, unpredictable and illiquid which may make it difficult for investors to sell their securities of the Profiled Issuers.
  • If we are compensated in improperly free trading securities of the Profiled Issuers, either directly or indirectly from persons who claim to be non-affiliates of such Profiled Issuer, we and the Profiled Issuer or third party could be subject to SEC Enforcement Action, including allegations of an illegal distribution in violation of Section 5(a) and 5(c) of the Securities Act.
  • We may hire third party service providers and stock promoters to electronically disseminate live news regarding the Profiled Issuers, yet we have no control over the content of and do not verify the information that the Profiled Issuers and/or third party service providers publish. These third party service providers are likely compensated for providing positive information about the Issuer and fail to disclose their compensation to you.
If a Profiled Issuer is an SEC reporting company, it could be delinquent (not current) in its periodic reporting obligations (i.e., in its quarterly and annual reports), or if it is an OTC Markets Pink Sheet quoted company, it may be delinquent in its Pink Sheet reporting obligations, which may result in OTC Markets posting a negative legend pertaining to the Profiled Issuer at www.otcmarkets.com, as follows: (i) “Limited Information” for companies with financial reporting problems, economic distress, or that are unwilling to file required reports with the Pink Sheets; (ii) “No Information,” which characterizes companies that are unable or unwilling to provide any disclosure to the public markets, to the SEC or the Pink Sheets; and (iii) “Caveat Emptor,” signifying buyers should be aware that there is a public interest concern associated with a company’s illegal spam campaign, questionable stock promotion, known investigation of a company’s fraudulent activity or its insiders, regulatory suspensions or disruptive corporate actions. If the Information states that a Profiled Issuer’s securities are consistent with the future economic trends or even if your independent research indicates that, you should be aware that economic trends have their own limitations, including: (a) that economic trends or predictions may be speculative; (b) consumers, producers, investors, borrowers, lenders and government may react in unforeseen ways and be affected by behavioral biases that we are unable to predict; (c) human and social factors may outweigh future economic trends that we state may or will occur; (d) clear cut economic predictions have their limitations in that they do not account for the fundamental uncertainty in economic life, as well as ordinary life; (e) economic trends may be disrupted by sudden jumps, disruptions or other factors that are not accounted for in economic trends analysis; in other words, past or present data predicting future economic trends may become irrelevant in light of new circumstances and situations in which uncertainty becomes reality rather than predicted economic outcome; or (f) if the trend predicted involves a single result, it ignores other scenarios that may be crucial to make a decision in the event of unknown contingencies. The Information is presented only as a brief snapshot of the Profiled Issuer and should only be used, at most, and if at all, as a starting point for you to conduct a thorough investigation of the Profiled Issuer and its securities. You should consult your financial, legal or other adviser(s) and avail yourself of the filings and information that may be accessed at www.sec.govwww.sec.gov, www.otcmarkets.com or other electronic media, including: (a) reviewing SEC periodic reports (Forms 10-Q and 10-K), reports of material events (Form 8-K), insider reports (Forms 3, 4, 5 and Schedule 13D); (b) reviewing Information and Disclosure Statements and unaudited financial reports filed with the OTCMarkets.com; (c) obtaining and reviewing publicly available information contained in commonly known search engines such as Google; and (d) consulting investment guides at www.sec.gov and www.finra.org.
