New Orleans Saints Quarterback Drew Brees has made an investment in the OurPact mobile parenting app, according to the app’s maker, San Diego-based ParentsWare Inc. Financial terms of the investment, announced June 2, were not disclosed.
ParentsWare describes OurPact as an application that enables parents to balance children’s mobile device habits and encourage distraction-free family moments. The product lets parents block internet and apps on children’s mobile devices at-a-touch from anywhere — whether on Wi-Fi at home or 4G at the grocery store.
The product is free. ParentsWare claims more than a half-million users around the world.
“OurPact is a product I believe in,” Brees said in a statement distributed by ParentsWare. “I heard about the application through a friend, and as soon as my wife and I tried it, we knew it was right for our family.”
Amir Moussavian is founder and chairman of ParentsWare. Moussavian is also CEO of San Diego-based MIR3, a company that specializes in mass notification products.
The investment in OurPact is not the only San Diego connection for Brees. He played for the San Diego Chargers early in his football career.
