Jim Tananbaum Shows Interest in Mindstrong Health, a Start-Up Health Tech Company

In Mid June 2017, Mindstrong Health, a start-up focused on neurological device, reported that it had successfully managed to raise $14 million – according to Mass Device. The funds were raised during the company’s Series A round of financing. The contributions will be used to support Mindstrong’s neuropsychiatric treatment as well as its diagnosis platform.

The AL- Powered platform is designed in a manner that allows the monitoring of interaction on Smartphone devices, an approach that provides objective measures of the brain function. The move was motivated by the fact that the treatment of other chronic illnesses such as diabetes and hypertension is usually based on objective measures – an element that is completely missing in the treatment and handling of patients suffering from neurological disorders.

Mindstrong’s platform intends to offer continuous digital biomarkers of cognition and mood that includes components such as attention, memory, executive function, and processing speed. Dr. Tom Insel, the co-founder, and president of Mindstrong pointed out that mental disorders are a global health challenge, and the availability of Smartphone will go a long way in delivering a global solution.

According to a Medium.com article, the Series A round of financing was spearheaded by Foresite Capital Management (headed by the founder and CEO, Jim Tananbaum), ARCH Venture Partners, and was later joined by One Mind Brain Health Impact Fund, Optum Ventures, and Berggruen Holdings.

David Giertz speaks about the importance of telling clients about social security benefits

If you were to ask Americans that are either retired or about to retire how much they know about their social security benefits on Twitter, you would be shocked at the level of ignorance people treat the subject. In fact, in a recently concluded survey, over 86 percent of pensioners do not understand the factors that affect some benefits they will receive upon retirement. David Giertz spoke to the Wall Street Journal about the subject, and he stated that it was critical that financial advisors start talking to their clients about their social security benefits.

He said on CNBC.com that not many people knew that starting to claim benefits earlier affected the amount they were supposed to receive in the long run. For instance, it is legal for people to start claiming social security benefits from the legal retirement age of 62. However, if one starts claiming too early, they will be receiving an average of up to $12,000 less every year which could translate to over $300,000 over a period of 25 years.

Other factors that affect the amount one receives in benefits are inflation, and the amount they used to receive as salary. Not many pensioners know it is possible to qualify for up to three types of benefits at https://vimeo.com/davidgiertz. For the mystery of social security benefits to be demystified, it is important for financial advisors to stop treating the topic as long and tedious.
