  15. 15. Copyright: 2016 Charlie Hartwell, ShiftIt Institute State of the Segment Crowded, 800+ apps, growing, not always a lot of differentiation, lots of media hype • Estimated 18-45 M Americans meditating. • Competition based on price, UX, instructors. • Cost of acquisition, churn major factors. • Still relatively small revenue bases – but some with large valuations • Headspace est. $220 M valuation • Has been conversion to stronger operating teams & outside financing. • Brands desire to build community • Leading apps based all over the world – no central location. • New entrants trying to capture either more niche markets or get better teachers. Recent new apps are for millenials, sports teams, education market, etc. • Some do B2B2C deals – with airlines, hotels, media, etc. • Several are working on how to incorporate with wearables or virtual reality Emotional & Mental Well-Being – B2C segment Headspace Gaiam Meditation Studio Insight TimerStop, Breathe, Think OMG I can meditate 10% Happier OmvanaMindfulness App BuddhifyCalm
  16. 16. Copyright: 2016 Charlie Hartwell, ShiftIt Institute Emotional Well-Being – B2B segment • Google “cool” factor- lots of PR • Relationship w/ WHIL for digital • Non-Profit • Has been in person- for senior execs • World Economic Forum speakers • Non-profit – Janice Marturano • Mainly in-person trainings • Great global corporate partnerships • Globally organized • Non-profit • 2 RTCs (best science) • Insurer relationships • Online live classes • Behavioral Health Platform • Converting to B2B • Raised $9 M 2015 • Focuses on resiliance– early mover • Customer retention spotty • In person & digital platform • CBT w/ coaching • CBT w/ Coaching
  17. 17. Copyright: 2016 Charlie Hartwell, ShiftIt Institute Brain Training Games/Platforms: State of the Segment • Most developed segment, several companies at later stages. • Larger customer acquisition budgets. • Propositions sold on fear • (in some cases) of cognitive decline or on benefits of keeping brain active. Some focus on performance. • Significant financing and acquisitions in this category. • Lumosity may be first IPO in mind-training space. • Controversy around science of some solutions – Lumosity fined $2 M. Some companies appear to have very strong science.
  18. 18. Copyright: 2016 Charlie Hartwell, ShiftIt Institute Emotional & Well Being – B2B segment (continued) • B2B market is showing growing interest, beginning to make buying decisions. • Long sales cycles. • Currently, some are describing the market as a “land-grab.” • Several of the players in the space are non-profits. • Competition is based on science, relationships, engagement, and customer service. • Pricing is normally PEPM, although some pricing is shifting to actual engagement. • Buyers are in Employee Wellness, HR, and Leadership Development departments. • Up to this point, there’s not been as much head to head competition - this is changing. • Some companies are offering changes in DNA through hair samples or blood as proof of before/after effects. • Most companies push the front end of science and don’t have great back end science. • Services include such things as in-person, online, online live…with more people adding community features and coaching services. • Terminology is crucial for the sell – it’s important to fit a solution into the culture of buyers. • Buyers have many different reasons for engaging in these solutions. • The for-profits have attracted quite a bit of early stage financing. • There are many small players in this segment doing coaching, live training. • Companies are developing their own programs in some cases – particularly insurers.
  19. 19. Copyright: 2016 Charlie Hartwell, ShiftIt Institute RX Brain Training Games • Some positioned as drug replacement or enhancement solutions, seeking FDA approval • Companies pursuing FDA are being looked at/ valued akin to biotech. State of the Segment • Science is key underpinning, w/ randomized control trials needed and studied for conditions • Rich amounts of investment in RX at large pre-revenue valuations • Some companies pursuing consumer route.
  20. 20. Copyright: 2016 Charlie Hartwell, ShiftIt Institute State of the Segment • Various segments and form factors. • Crowded field - can be hard to find points of difference. • Capital intensive, manufacturing risk, distribution & selling risk, need software solutions. • Integration happening with other apps. • Sometimes software developed open source by others. • Retail has been focused on fitness wearables, this is new segment – lots of training. • Data may turn out to be very valuable to corporations. • Research being done using for treating medical conditions. Wearables Segment SENSELabs VR EEG Sensors in Strips HRV Bracelets Rings Holdables
  21. 21. Copyright: 2016 Charlie Hartwell, ShiftIt Institute State of the Segment • Retail segment beginning to grow, and major retailers beginning to put mind training on the shelves. • Several groups have looked at building national meditation studios or brain fitness retail outlets (none is yet past one location/city). • Conferences are continuing to grow audiences, more conferences forming.

  34. 34. Technological breakthroughs are creating enormous potential for the future of neuropsychology and triggering opportunities to create novel strategies for both assessment and intervention. Cognitive fitness is growing into a multi-billion dollar industry. Targets have shifted from diagnosis and treatment of established diseases to early intervention, prevention, and cognitive enhancement. Ubiquitous mobile devices enable both active and passive sensing of our cognitive and emotional states, and “the Internet of things” promises to offer both assessment and intervention strategies previously unimaginable (“...my car/clock/refrigerator does that...”). In keeping with this trend, the AACN seeks to stimulate innovations capable of changing the landscape of clinical neuropsychology in fundamental ways.
  35. 35. The pitch ideas need to focus on neuropsychological assessment and/or intervention, prevention, or improvement of cognitive functions, and be accessible to broad populations across the United States or the World. Applications are being accepted in two categories: • Shoot for the Stars: Unleash your wildest ideas. Change the world. Transform the practice of clinical neuropsychology. Timeframe: 5 to 10 years. • Push Current Boundaries: Given current practices for assessment and treatment or prevention, what is the next logical step to transform neuropsychology? How can you bring new technologies to enhance the existing state-of-the-art? Timeframe: 1 to 2 years.

Aging at Home Solutions for better management of complex chronic conditions for older adults with dementia at home. Cognitive Fitness Solutions that improve brain health / cognitive fitness in older adults. 2016/17 Challenge sets 59
  54. 54. GAP #1: INNOVATION AT THE POINT OF CARE • Front-line seniors’ care staff include RNs, personal support workers, occupational therapists, social workers, case mgrs., etc. • They have little opportunity to innovate; they are told to follow “Best Practices” • CC-ABHI SPARK program provides up to $50K to enable front-line health workers to experiment and invent new ways to deliver care, provide better access or save money
  55. 55. EXAMPLE: SENSORY OBSERVATION SYSTEM • SOS is a mobile app designed to replace and enhance pocket cards used by personal support workers to monitor for acute exacerbations in client conditions • Designed by a Registered Nurse at Baycrest, a software development company was employed to rapidly prototype the app so that real-world assessment could be undertaken • The SOS app is now going through it’s third design iteration prior to being widely deployed
  56. 56. GAP #2: LACK OF SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE • Numerous commercial innovations are entering the marketplace which target aging and brain health consumers and professionals • However, few have objective scientific evidence showing that they significantly impact outcomes or address the real problems in the sector • CC-ABHI’s Industry Innovation Partnership Program (I2P2) supports trial-sites with up to $600K to evaluate products and services providing companies with objective feedback as to the real efficacy of their innovation
  57. 57. EXAMPLE: Cogniciti.com • One of the few scientifically validated on-line brain health assessments available today • Offered to the public as a free, private, and clinically validated test, backed by Baycrest • CC-ABHI supported several scientific assessments of validity against gold-standard face-to-face tests
  58. 58. 64CANADIAN CENTRE FOR AGING & BRAIN HEALTH INNOVATION EXAMPLE: CC-ABHI <> ISRAEL COLLABORATION • CC-ABHI has partnered with the Israel Innovation Authority (IIA) to support Israeli innovators to bring their products/services to N.A. for evaluation and refinement • Funding support from IIA and CC-ABHI can be $500K or higher • First competition nearly complete – work to begin in the spring of 2017
  59. 59. • Researchers around the world are developing promising new innovations in their labs • However, it often takes years for promising solutions to reach seniors-care clinicians at the bedside who could use these innovations • CC-ABHI’s Clinician and Scientist Partnership Program (CSPP) supports direct partnership between academic researchers and practicing clinicians with up to $600K to accelerate promising solutions to the bedside GAP #3: SLOW DIFFUSION OF PROMISING SCIENCE TO CLINICAL TEAMS
  60. 60. • Years of research and clinical practice have generate a large body of knowledge detailing the best methods of care • However, people change slowly. It is difficult for end-users to adopt and use proven practices • CC-ABHI’s Knowledge Mobilization (KM) program uses advanced educational approaches to engage learners and support them in their work practice to ensure the effective adoption of knowledge and its translation to practice GAP #4: MOBILIZING KNOWLEDGE AND DRIVING ADOPTION
  61. 61. EXAMPLE: INTERNATIONAL TELEHEALTH EDUCATION • International partnerships with 28 countries worldwide • Collaborative programming model invites knowledge transfer with an international perspective, creating a greater wealth of experience • Videoconference and webinar series:  Behavioural Neurology Rounds  Rotman Research Institute Scientific Rounds  International Behavioural Neurology Rounds  Geriatric Mental Health Rounds  Behavioural Support Rounds  Greater Toronto Area Leaders Group Series  NIRVE (Neurology Residents Rounds)  Aphasia Interest Group Series  Geriatric Medicine Rounds  Visiting Professor Series
