Tripp recently raised $11.2 million in funding to help it continue to create meditation apps that power the “mindful metaverse.”
The funding was raised from Amazon Alexa Fund, Bitkraft Ventures, Qualcomm, HTC, Niantic and Mayfield. Tripp reports that it will use the funding to help meet the growing global demand for mental wellbeing through Tripp’s extended-reality (XR) wellness accessible through augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and mobile applications.
