About Us

Branch Out accelerates tech solutions and non-pharmaceutical approaches to neurological disorders. Through our Grant Program, we fund top neuroscientists exploring alternative brain research. Our vision? A world free from neurological disorders.

We fund research that fits into the rigorous NeuroCAM (Neuroscience + Complementary & Alternative Modalities) criteria.  All research proposals are reviewed by our Scientific Review Panel to ensure it meets the highest quality of research methods and scientific measures. Since 2010, we’ve raised nearly $2 Million for alternative brain research, funded over sixty-five (65) research projects and have expanded our University Grant Program to partner with five educational institutes across Western Canada.  

We've raised almost 2 million dollars
towards innovative tech and non-pharma solutions to neurological disorders!
