Born out of the NIHR Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre (BRC), Mindwave was founded in 2014; the brain-child of Kumar Jacob MBE, who trained as an accountant and then operated in different guises across a broad range of sectors, including charity, education, health and technology.
Having worked with creative teams that brought out hugely popular video games such as Burnout , Singstar, WipeOut at Criterion and Sony, whilst also serving as a non-exec director at SLaM and as the chair at the Maudsley Charity, Kumar could see a disparity between the way that the public sector and the technology sector were solving problems.
Over the years, the team has grown from a handful of designers, to a full service provider, supplying expert health design and technology consultancy alongside end-to-end digital service development.
To date, Mindwave has worked with a wide range of health focused organisations, including multiple NHS trusts and ICS regions, health focused charities, and a large number of clinical academic teams. Mindwave also works with and supports a number of health-tech startups, providing consultancy, design, development and project management to support peers to successfully enter the market.
Mindwave is known for going above and beyond, and for the team’s eagerness to help, converse and collaborate. Get in touch for a genuine chat, to work together or even for a pinch of free advice.
