Kinspire Raises $3.6M


Kinspire, the top platform for pediatric occupational therapy co-founded by Lily Baiser and Robert Seigel that connects parents with skilled therapists, and today the company said it has closed $3.6 million in seed funding. With the support of Difference Partners, Great Oaks VC, Service Provider Capital, The Fund, Copper Wire Ventures, and Bradley Tusk, the round was co-led by Corazon Capital and Looking Glass Capital.

Launched in 2020, Kinspire offers families of kids with developmental delays and disabilities a family-centered and value-based treatment model for pediatric occupational therapy. An estimated 1 in 6 American children have been identified as having developmental delays or disabilities, and they could substantially benefit from programs like occupational therapy.

However, long waitlists for evaluations, high costs of services, and inconvenient provider distribution produce accessibility and affordability constraints.

Moreover, studies have repeatedly demonstrated that involving parents in their child’s occupational therapy leads to better outcomes and faster progress. Despite this, traditional OT approaches do not always fully incorporate parent involvement. These constraints often lead to significant delays or a complete lack in children receiving critical pediatric therapeutic services, such as occupational therapy.
