Memorang, a San Francisco, CA-based gamified study and test prep tool for several subjects, raised $500k in seed funding.

The company intends to use the funds to expand its technology and premium content offerings.
Founded in 2013 by Yermie Cohen and George Courtsunis, Memorang provides a web and mobile study tool for several subjects aiming to transform studying into customizable interactive quizzes and games. The platform allows users to either create their own free flashcards, multiple choice and matching questions, or utilize premium flash cards, written by experts and today covering Medical, Pre-Medical, Nursing, Physical Therapy, Physician Assistant, EMT, GRE, Pharmacy, and Accounting.
To date, Memorang has been used by students to study for the MCATs, the U.S. Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE), and board exams via iOS, Android, and web apps in over 100 countries. The company is now hiring a content team that will create expert study materials for medicine, health sciences, and new subjects such as the CPA exam, CFA exam, and TOEFL English language test.
