Startup Monday is ABCey’s weekly post that showcases some of the most innovative San Francisco startups! These are often selected from a list of companies that we LOVE or have worked with in the past. This week, we are putting the spotlight on Calm! As an event planner, we are ALWAYS on our toes. Calm helps us wind down after our big events!
What is Calm?
Founded in 2012 with the aim to improve the world’s mental health, Calm provides a range of apps aimed at simply and effectively helping individuals to relax and soothe their minds. It produces meditation products, including guided medications and their own bedtime stories- Sleeptime Stories!
How Does It Work?
Their primary product is the meditation app, available on iPhone and Android devices. Within the app, there are customizable settings, minfulness reminders and much more. It introduces the basics of mindfulness meditation though different kinds of guides that you unlock once you have completed a session. Also, the app features both meditation tools and sleep aids.
Why We Love It
We love this app as meditating has never been easier. Choosing your top goals you want to accomplish via meditation can be done in one simple click. Calm is the perfect mindfulness app for beginners, but also includes hundreds of programs for intermediate and advanced users. This makes it perfect for all levels!
