2. WHAT IS YOUR DEFINITION OF A TRUTH FOUNDER?

3. WHAT EVENT OR EVENTS HAPPENED TO YOU THAT INSPIRED YOU TO BECOME A FOUNDER? We were driven to create a solution by seeing the real impact of mental health issues
on individuals and society, as well as recognizing the economic and social aspects.
Despite the prevalence of mental health issues and the need for timely support, the
waiting time for an initial therapist appointment in Germany is a lengthy 140 days.
The catalyst for our decision to become founders came from a personal story shared
by my co-founder, Kseniia Teslenko. She received news from her mother in Ukraine
that Russia started a full-scale invasion in Ukraine and witnessed the psychological
struggles of Ukrainian refugees in Germany. Despite the need, she was not able to
find a therapist either. This experience led us to create a solution ourselves. Having
dealt with the aftermath of war and personally faced challenges in finding a therapist,
we understood the importance of taking collective action.
Recognizing the issues within the mental health care system, such as accessibility
problems, and limited resources, along with a genuine entrepreneurial spirit,
influenced our choice to embark on this journey. Our goal is to establish a business
that addresses a critical societal need and leaves a meaningful impact.
