Dear Aura community,

Five years ago, we as brothers heard a calling to devote our lives to healing and restoring the world's mental wellbeing.

When we were just kids, we saw our mother struggle with depression from her divorce and developed a passion for protecting others' mental wellbeing. Then we saw this fundamental need grow even bigger among our friends, communities, and across the world.

We believed everyone deserves to find peace and took on the unconventional path of founding Aura. We envisioned creating the world's most personalized, comprehensive wellbeing platform the next billion people can use to find peace anywhere, anytime.

Since then, Aura has become the world's largest platform for mental wellbeing content & services. Over 7 million people have joined Aura, and every year, 100s of millions of minutes are spent in meditation & listening on Aura. Aura has also helped hundreds of coaches scale their impact by enabling them to produce audio content and provide 1-1 coaching on one platform; coaches have earned millions on Aura, and we believe this is just the beginning for Aura.

For the next 1 week, you can join Aura’s mission and become a community investor through our community investment round.

What is a community investment round?

Historically, startup investing has been accessible only to accredited investors, and this barrier created a cycle of only the wealthy getting wealthier.

However, a new amendment was passed in 2021 that enabled startups to raise up to $5M from their communities. This new law created a transformative opportunity for startups to commit more deeply to the people they serve and offer their community the financial upside in their success.

Aura Health is a startup backed by some of the most well-known technology investors & venture capitalists in Silicon Valley. We have decided to raise a community round so that you can be a part of our mission and have a financial upside in Aura's growth, not just accredited investors.

We have a big vision for the world, and Aura is just at the beginning of its potential. We want to digitize every coach & therapist's knowledge, create new experiences for improving mental wellbeing, and democratize access to the world's best resources for wellbeing. This investment round will serve an important role in unlocking our next phase.

Your invitation to Aura’s community investment round

For the next few weeks, you have the opportunity to become a community investor in Aura. You can invest as little as $150 to as much as $100,000 to join our mission and have your investment grow as Aura grows.

Because we have a hard limit on how much investment we can accept, we'd love for you to have the first opportunity before we open access to the public. The reservation page will only be open for the next 1 week.

Become a community investor in Aura today.

Join us our mission of restoring the world’s mental wellbeing.

Please note that you will not be able to invest or commit yet; you will only be able to show interest and reserve your spot. Startup investing is risky, but we’re fully committed to creating an outsized return on your investment.

Thank you for being a part of our journey.

Best,Steve & Daniel Lee
Co-founders, Aura Health

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are you raising a community investment round?

Last year, a new law was passed that enabled startups to raise up to $5M from their communities; this new law created a transformative opportunity for startups to offer their community the financial upside in their success.

Instead of just having VC’s benefit from our success, we want you to become a part of our mission and have an upside in our success.

How does start-up investing work?

You will be investing through the most common startup investing investment called Crowd SAFE. You will lock down our valuation today and generate a return when we exit at a higher valuation (e.g. go public or sell to another company).

Please note that startup investment is risky and there is a chance that we may fail. But successful startups can generate 10-100x returns and we believe we have a good chance.

Who can invest?

Generally, anyone 18 years or older from anywhere in the world can invest.

Republic currently only prohibits Ontario residents from investing due to Ontario Securities Commission’s request.

How much can I invest?

You can invest as little as $150 to as much as $100,000.

Please note that for investments greater than $2,200, you have to press a button on Republic to add additional information. Republic will protect your investment amount based on your income & net worth. If you’re having trouble with the verification, Republic can help right away at investors@republic.co.

How do I join the round?

Reserve your spot on Republic by clicking here.

Republic is the world’s leading equity crowdfunding platform with <5% acceptance rate. We have been selected as one of their leading investments.

Please note that you will not be able to invest or commit yet; you will only be able to show interest and reserve your spot. We are reaching out to you before we reach out to our users, Republic investors, and the public so that you can have the first reservation opportunity.

The reservation page will only be live for August. When the campaign goes live in September, we have a hard cap on how much investment we can accept, so we encourage you to reserve now. The reservation will not auto-convert to investment, so there is no commitment or risk.

Can I share this opportunity with others?

Absolutely. Whether you can personally invest or not, please support us by sharing about our community round with your family, friends, and network.

Can I invest later?

At the moment, we don’t have plans to open up further community rounds.
