We are proud to announce the closing of our $10M Series A funding round, led by Tenfore Holdings with participation from the Felton Group, the Autism Impact Fund and the Disability Opportunity Fund. 

Additionally, we have formalized a partnership with one of Ohio-based payer CareSource’s providers, Arkansas Support Network (ASN), to bring VR interventions to their clients.
