About us:

Our vision is to make mental health radically accessible.  

We are a team of innovators, experts and business builders who have come together to develop advanced technologies that can transform healthcare. 

We’re focused on addressing the vast, unmet need for improved engagement and outcomes in mental health with Woebot, a digital coach that helps people engage more deeply and continuously in their mental health. Woebot's breakthrough is its ability to form a human-level bond with people using the latest in NLP, ML and other advanced technologies. Leveraging this therapeutic bond, and the expertise of our Stanford-trained clinicians and scientists, Woebot is constantly learning from the experience of more than one million people and hundreds of millions of messages exchanged to deliver high quality CBT-based therapeutic tools that are psychologically related and responsive to a person’s dynamic state of health.

Our work to advance human-centered technology has attracted a lot of attention. Today we’ve amassed more mentions in the scientific literature than any other digital therapeutic company, and are regularly featured as the architects of a radically new approach to mental health. But we’ve only just begun. With the backing of some of the world’s most forward thinking investors and a new round of funding complete, we’re poised to redefine how people access mental health care.
