About Us

Mission Statement

Our world has never been as distracted as now.  With so much information fighting for your attention, and so many distraction technologies stealing your time, Centered was created to help people get into Flow States quicker and stay there longer to be more productive, accomplished, and happier.

About Centered

Centered was founded in 2020 as a response to the growing influence of distraction technologies.  As the #1 Flow State App for Productivity, Centered pulls all your Tasks into one place and helps you blaze through them in record time.  Since our founding, we raised two rounds of financing from amazing angels and institutional investors who support us in our mission.
