Yunha Kim hopes she gets an investment for Simple Habit, her meditation app, in Shark Tank episode 903, the season nine premier. The app lets users unwind through meditation in a variety of settings. Instead of getting into a seated position with closed eyes, users choose from different meditation exercises based on their current setting or situation. There are numerous 5 minute meditation exercises for driving, flying on a plane, getting ready for a meeting and more.
Kim started the business after needing a way to de-stress after working at an internet startup. The former investment banker left that company in 2015 and turned to meditation to center herself. In 2016, she collaborated with a Harvard psychologist to create the app which launched that July. It targets busy young professionals who need a calming influence in their busy work life.
The app is free for the basic version, but the enhanced versions cost $49-$99 per year. So far, it has positive, 5 star reviews and is one Apple's “apps we love.” People from surgeons to parents to young professionals use it to decompress.
Will a Shark find this a mindful investment?
