Kindara raises $5.3M seed to grow its mHealth offering for women

Kindara Wink

Women’s health startup Kindara has raised $5.3M in seed funding, including the conversion of $1.9 million in convertible notes. Boston Seed Capital led the round with participation from SOSV, Good Works Ventures, PV Ventures, MENA Venture Investments and 62 Mile Ventures.

The fresh capital will help Kindara extend its platform to address a broader range of women’s health concerns. Moreover, the funding will be used to finalize the manufacturing of Wink, the company’s Bluetooth-enabled basal thermometer that connects with the Kindara app to give women a seamless experience when aiming to achieve or avoid pregnancy naturally.

Since 2012, Kindara has helped more than 750,000 women better understand their bodies and 75,000 women achieve pregnancy.“Women want to understand their bodies and use that knowledge to make informed decisions about their reproductive health. The Kindara platform gives them an unprecedented level of insight, support and empowerment when making decisions around achieving or avoiding pregnancy,” said Will Sacks, CEO and Co-founder of Kindara. “This recent round of funding will allow us to extend our lead in this movement and expand beyond fertility to provide lifetime support for women’s health and wellness.”

Wink and Kindara are based on the Fertility Awareness Method (FAM), a highly effective and scientifically proven method of tracking fertility signs that helps women understand their fertility status each day. With this information, women can plan accordingly to either achieve or avoid pregnancy.

Since 2012, Kindara has helped more than 750,000 women better understand their bodies, 75,000 women achieve pregnancy, and enabled a collective total of 200,000 Pill-free, pregnancy-free cycles for those trying to avoid pregnancy. Women enter more than 650,000 data points into Kindara each week.

Kindara’s Wink is slated for shipping at the end of 2015.
