“Sharp­Brains’ mar­ket reports have helped us fur­ther tar­get our coach­ing efforts to inte­grate brain fit­ness and upgrade our entire coach­ing plat­form. They give you the indus­try per­spec­tive in a thor­ough yet con­cise man­ner. I highly rec­om­mend them!
– Mar­garet Sabin, CEO of Sut­ter Health Part­ners and Vice Pres­i­dent, New Prod­uct Devel­op­ment, for Sut­ter Health

“Many mar­ket reports pro­vide lit­tle value for the money. This new mar­ket report by Sharp­Brains is the pre­cise oppo­site. Its wealth of data and analy­sis pro­vides very valu­able strate­gic and busi­ness devel­op­ment guid­ance to orga­ni­za­tions at the fron­tier of health and well­ness.”
– Alexan­dra More­houre, VP Brand Man­age­ment, Kaiser Permanente

“Sharp­Brains’ mar­ket reports are a must-have for any­one track­ing, devel­op­ing or adopt­ing dig­i­tal tech­nol­ogy for brain health. Sharp­Brains has done an excel­lent job ana­lyz­ing the com­pet­i­tive land­scape and indus­try trends in a way that is eas­ily digestible and action­able.”
– Zack Lynch, Founder, Neu­rotech­nol­ogy Indus­try Organization

“As our pop­u­la­tion ages the fields of phys­i­cal health and brain health will nat­u­rally merge and, as this hap­pens, a whole new field of val­ued added ser­vices will emerge for our mem­bers. High qual­ity mar­ket reports such as Sharp­Brains’ are cru­cial to the suc­cess of this merger.”
– Robin Klaus, Chair­man, Club One Fit­ness Centers

“The annual Sharp­Brains Sum­mit is an impres­sive vir­tual con­vo­ca­tion of lead­ing sci­en­tists and devel­op­ers and adopters of cog­ni­tive enhance­ment tech­nol­ogy; it would be hard to match in a sin­gle phys­i­cal space.”
– Dr. Robert Bilder, Chief of Med­ical Psychology-Neuropsychology, UCLA Semel Insti­tute for Neuroscience

Kudos for an excel­lent resource! This Sharp­Brains Guide to Brain Fit­ness is full of top notch infor­ma­tion, pro­vides prac­ti­cal tips and helps sep­a­rate hype from hope in the brain health arena.“
– Eliz­a­beth Edgerly, Ph.D., Chief Pro­gram Offi­cer, Alzheimer’s Association

“The Sharp­Brains Sum­mit brings together lead­ers in all rel­e­vant cog­ni­tive fields from busi­ness to aca­d­e­mic com­mu­ni­ties, as well as pro­vid­ing a forum to address the evo­lu­tion of this emerg­ing indus­try. Because cog­ni­tive enhance­ment, fit­ness, and enter­tain­ment are rel­a­tively nascent indus­tries, it has been dif­fi­cult to use tra­di­tional bench­marks to eval­u­ate its suc­cess and growth. Sharp­Brains is quickly becom­ing the “go to” resource for inno­va­tion and busi­ness insight.“
– Stan­ley Yang, CEO, NeuroSky

“Sharp­Brains’ ground­break­ing report pro­vides a defin­i­tive overview of brain health inno­va­tion – an impor­tant space to watch for every tech and health­care exec­u­tive and investor. Sharp­Brains’ com­pre­hen­sive report defines a clear scope for the mar­ket and also charts its evo­lu­tion, path and key trends.“
– Tim Chang, Man­ag­ing Direc­tor at The May­field Fund.

“An in-depth and cred­i­ble mar­ket research report that pro­vides an objec­tive view for investors and exec­u­tives look­ing for gam­ing and health oppor­tu­ni­ties in the grow­ing “brain train­ing” space. This report is a must-read to under­stand the state of the mar­ket, the play­ers, and key trends.
– Daniel Gold­man, founder of Total Enter­tain­ment Net­work and for­mer exec­u­tive at Posit Sci­ence Corporation.

Great exam­ple of how bring­ing sci­en­tific lead­ers and inno­va­tors together can spur thought­ful dis­cus­sion about our most vital organ – the brain. Brain sci­ence is a rapidly chang­ing field with expan­sion and devel­op­ments hap­pen­ing in small pock­ets around the world. The vir­tual sum­mit facil­i­tates the esca­la­tion of pub­lic atten­tion on brain health and informs trans­la­tion of sci­en­tific dis­cov­ery into imple­men­ta­tion.”
– Dr. San­dra Bond Chap­man, Direc­tor, Cen­ter for Brain­Health at The Uni­ver­sity of Texas at Dallas

“The annual Sharp­Brains Vrtual Sum­mit is a con­ve­nient and sur­pris­ingly com­pelling forum for catch­ing up on applied cog­ni­tive research from lead­ers in the field and for help­ing shape future brain health care.”
— Dr. Yaakov Stern, Cog­ni­tive Neu­ro­science Divi­sion Leader, Colum­bia University

“The Sharp­Brains Sum­mit pro­vides com­mon ground for prac­ti­tion­ers, sci­en­tists and indus­try lead­ers to work towards the com­mon goal of dri­ving brain health and fit­ness for­ward with a thought­ful, ana­lyt­i­cal and prac­ti­cal approach.”
– Kate Sul­li­van, Direc­tor of the Brain Fit­ness Cen­ter at Wal­ter Reed National Mil­i­tary Med­ical Center

“The 2012 Sharp­Brains Sum­mit was fan­tas­tic– it is clear that we are mov­ing into a new phase in study­ing human per­for­mance using big data. Our bod­ies are out­liv­ing our brains– what we need most now is evidence-driven design to develop appli­ca­tions to help our brains remain as strong as our bod­ies! Fan­tas­tic con­fer­ence, can’t wait for next year!”
— Sheryl Flynn PT, PhD, CEO, Blue Mar­ble Games

“The Sharp­Brains Vir­tual Sum­mit is the sin­gle global point of con­tact for cog­ni­tive health inno­va­tors, high­light­ing the state-of-the-art themes in tech­nol­ogy, research and con­sumer demand.”
– Jaan Tul­viste, CEO, Cognuse

The report met and exceeded all of our expec­ta­tions. The report’s clar­ity and fac­tual basis was refresh­ing. I found it hard to put down. Our follow-up brain­storm ses­sion with Alvaro was the icing on the cake. Thank you Sharp­Brains for putting together such a com­pre­hen­sive body of infor­ma­tion and sup­port to assist in the launch of our busi­ness.“
– Adam Mer­ri­field, CFO AKM Hold­ings, Inc.

“This report is com­pre­hen­sive to say the least. It pro­vides an essen­tial ser­vice for long term care orga­ni­za­tions who want to pro­vide mind-enhancing pro­grams and ser­vices. There is a bewil­der­ing array of tech­nol­ogy cur­rently avail­able. Few, if any, of us have the resources or exper­tise to sort through all the lit­er­a­ture and mar­ket­place to help deter­mine what may work best for a given group of res­i­dents, as well as what is most prac­ti­cal from a staff imple­men­ta­tion per­spec­tive. The State of the Mar­ket report helps sort out the strengths and capac­i­ties of these new tech­nolo­gies and answers some urgent ques­tions.“
– Bev­erly San­born, Vice Pres­i­dent of Activ­i­ties and Mem­ory Pro­grams at Bel­mont Vil­lages Senior Living.

A mas­ter­ful guide to the brain train­ing rev­o­lu­tion. Promises to stim­u­late a much needed con­ver­sa­tion that will nudge soci­ety to build a new brain fit­ness cul­ture on solid, research-based, foun­da­tions.“
– P. Murali Doraiswamy MD, Pro­fes­sor of Psy­chi­a­try, Duke University

“Finally, an insight­ful and com­plete overview of the sci­ence, com­pa­nies and trends in the brain fit­ness field. A must-read for every­one offer­ing prod­ucts and ser­vices to boomers and elders.“
– Glo­ria Cavanaugh, for­mer Pres­i­dent & CEO of the Amer­i­can Soci­ety on Aging and found­ing Board mem­ber of the National Alliance for Caregiving.

“I can­not rec­om­mend the Sharp­Brains Vir­tual Sum­mit highly enough. It’s a fan­tas­tic forum for knowl­edge shar­ing in the com­plex area of brain health pro­vid­ing access and dis­cus­sion with world lead­ers in the field. I found the vir­tual for­mat actu­ally enhanced the learn­ing expe­ri­ence and the short ses­sions focused the con­tent in an engag­ing way which is often lack­ing in other tra­di­tional con­fer­ence set­tings”
— David Coleiro, Part­ner, Strate­gic North
