The Opportunity

Over the last decade, anxiety, depression, and stress has increased among people between the ages of 10 and 24.

Increase in the # of teens reporting major depressive symptoms.

Increase of suicidal thoughts or attempts in teens between 2005-2018.

Increase in anxiety diagnoses between 2008 and 2018.

Despite the rise in prevalence and risk, mental health prevention and support services remain stigmatized and inaccessible for young people and their parents or guardians.

The Approach

We believe thoughtfully designed technology-based tools can create more accessible and equitable ways of improving the mental health and well-being of young people.

We are looking for scalable companies led by founders with a deep desire to positively impact the mental health and well-being of young people between the ages of 10-24, with a focus on the following categories:

Fostering Positive Online Experiences & Interactions

Bolstering Social & Emotional Skills & Positive Behaviors

Increasing Access to Care & Support

Improving Mental Health & Well-Being

Portfolio Companies

We invest in Pre-seed and Seed-stage companies with initial evidence of a scalable, for-profit business model and a tenacious, passionate team with complementary experience & skills.
