Heartbeat Labs, the Berlin-based startup platform for digital health, participated in Mimi Hearing Technologies Series A round.
Mimi Hearing, the world’s standard in personalized sound and advanced hearing technologies, has secured an investment from digital health startup platform Heartbeat labs, next to existing investors Atlantic Labs and Die Brückenköpfe.
The investment helps guarantee a strong, independent future for Mimi, funding deeper development and monetization of its core digital hearing technologies used by over a million people worldwide.
Eckhardt Weber, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Heartbeat Labs, said of the investment: “With Mimi we are investing in a deep, difficult-to-copy technology that was developed together with the Charité Berlin. It is also exciting that Mimi can go so many different ways for monetisation: as a license to hardware companies, as a plug-in for streaming services or in cooperation with health insurances. “
The Series A funding builds on an exceptional period of growth for Mimi which has seen a rapidly expanding agenda of partnerships, key appointments, and market momentum around a white-hot area of audio tech, hearing health and lifestyle products, over the last twelve months.
