Mental illness impacts 25 percent of people at some point in life. Therapy can be expensive, and mental illness carries a cultural stigma that makes it hard for individuals and families to seek treatment.
In response, mental healthcare startup X2AI developed Tess, a text-based psychological AI chatbot that supports mental health by responding to people experiencing stress, depression, addiction, and thoughts of suicide via customized text conversations.
When X2AI’s founder was ready to commercialize his AI application, he decided that Singularity University (SU) and its global community could help him connect with experts to refine Tess, help her scale, and get her to market faster to begin making a real and positive difference in the world.
Read this case study to learn about X2AI’s journey with SU Ventures and how the startup benefited from SU’s global network to connect the company with medical device manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies, insurance companies, hospitals, clinics, and more, to deploy Tess in a multitude of locations around the world.
