Lumos Labs raises $32.5m: Largest Cognitive/ Brain Fitness Investment so far

Lumos Labs, the company behind lumosity.com, has raised $32.5 million dollars in a Series C round from Menlo Ventures, FirstMark Capital, Harrison Metal and Norwest Venture Partners.

In our 2010 market report Lumos Labs came up as one of the category Leaders given its market and research momentum (not easy for a startup to get clear momentum in either of those dimensions, much less in both of them), so our congratulations to them for now adding such investment traction.

This is the largest round of funding so far in the cognitive fitness space so far, and should contribute to the maturity of the field as well as to more innovation and R&D.

Description: Lumos Labs is a cog­ni­tive neu­ro­science research and devel­op­ment com­pany that builds soft­ware tools for improv­ing brain health and per­for­mance. Lumosity.com is the first gen­eral brain fit­ness pro­gram from Lumos Labs. Spe­cial­ized in cre­at­ing inno­v­a­tive appli­ca­tions of the lat­est devel­op­ments in brain sci­ence in order to help peo­ple lead bet­ter lives, Lumos Labs has been con­sis­tently focused on research­ing and devel­op­ing effec­tive cog­ni­tive train­ing appli­ca­tions, includ­ing work­ing closely with a Sci­en­tific Advi­sory Board of lead­ing researchers from insti­tu­tions such as Stan­ford and UCSF.

In related news, Marbles: The Brain Store (another company featured in our 2010 report given its innovative service-oriented model) announced a couple of weeks ago a $5.5 million round to continue its retail expansion. Congratulations to them too.
