Co-founder of Sensie
Mike is a co-founder at Sensie app, an application that detects if stress is present, the cause of stress and provides programming to help remove stress - helping to make peace a choice. An entrepreneur from an early age, Mike’s accomplishments include starting one of the first social media promotional platforms, helping to lead the international expansion of Groupon, running business development for yCombinator startup Grouper Social Club and co-founding 1Apeiron, a venture incubator. At the age of 21 Mike suffered a concussion with amnesia, his future looked bleak but with the help of a friend he learned to meditate to help with the recovery process. Miracles happened and he has been passionate about consciousness and the mind-body connection ever since. Before Sensie came to life, talking about mind-body was the foundation of the friendship between Mike and co-founder Thomas. They spent many conversations discussing technology that could read the signals of the body. Those early conversations have now materialized as Sensie, a tool to create the conditions to help end suffering. Together with the Sensie team, Mike helps drive the vision, strategy and growth of Sensie for people to connect mind and body and find balance. Mike sits on the board of Miami Beach Botanical Garden and is an internationally acclaimed yoga teacher - leading retreats around the world with his wife twice a year.
