Women founders laying the groundwork for Ukrainian economic recovery

Maria Smerechuk, Cofounder & COO of Mindly, an online mental health platform that connects clients to licensed therapists

““AI is the only way we can make mental health therapy truly accessible to all. With the shortage of qualified therapists, and the relatively high expenses of therapy sessions, AI can help scale and support the work of therapists in so many ways. Of the 15,000+ people using Mindly, nine in 10 found their therapist the first time on our AI-powered platform.

We are building out our AI features because Mindly is now in a position to help millions of people, create jobs, and have a real positive macro impact on the Ukrainian economy and the world as we know it. Our goal for 2030 is to help make one billion lives healthy, happy and fulfilling through psychology.”
