Solve one of the biggest problems humans are facing today, emotional wellbeing, with Aura, a VC-backed startup in SF.

Aura is an emotion-based search engine that helps people who are stressed, anxious, or sad improve their mood within 3 minutes, whenever they need. People can share with Aura how they're feeling, and Aura will use machine learning to deliver wellness content, personalized to their emotions, that improves their mood. Aura is like Jarvis, but for supporting emotional health & fitness.
