NeuroPlus has developed brain-sensing technology to improve cognitive performance in individuals with attention deficits like ADHD. Users wear an EEG headset that measures their brain activity, body movement, and muscle tension, and play a training game on their iOS or Android device that rewards them for being focused and calm. A randomized, controlled, blinded clinical study conducted by a researcher at Duke University found NeuroPlus to dramatically improve attention and reduce hyperactivity/impulsivity in children with ADHD.

Jake is one of the brightest, articulate and mature young entrepreneurs that we are involved with. We are a VC fund based in SC, and invested in NeuroSpire last year. We are very pleased with Jake's leadership and innovation and are excited to continue to support him and NeuroSpire in the future. The company's application to treat children with ADHD is very meaningful and impactful for today's pharmaceutical-led society. Bravo to Jake and his team for their progress so far!

I met Jake in 2011 when we joined a startup accelerator at Duke. He was developing software to make sense of EEG brainwaves, but I had no ideas for a company yet. He's the one who recommended that I start bottling and selling the tea I was brewing for myself—believing in me long before I believed in myself. He also pushed me to add carbonation to the mixture so that it would appeal to men. After hundreds of tests on consumers, his intuition was spot-on. My tea became MATI Energy.

Jake isn’t just another peer though. He’s a genius. From a perfect score on the SAT to a 4.0 GPA at Duke, he’s a rockstar. His work ethic is second-to-none, and his energy transfers to his team - who are the first ones in the American Underground office every morning and the last to leave.. He’s changing an industry which, like energy drinks, is desperate for a better solution. NEURO+ works—I’ve played it myself—and I know it's going to change the lives of millions of children and their families.
