The challenge

Mind Data was born from my personal struggle with suicidal depression in 2015, fuelling my desire to address the global mental health crisis and positively impact one million people around the world.

As a first-time solo entrepreneur, I faced a few challenges, including business planning, fundraising, pitching and building a network of like-minded founders – this is all stuff the Allia Accelerator seemed to address, so I hopped on the application and applied!

The result – how the programme helped

The programme provided amazing support in business planning, fundraising and pitching, while connecting me with an inspiring community of entrepreneurs. Through the programme I not only secured investment, hired a Chief Psychology Officer but have partnered with universities for projects and pilots.

The progress and experiences throughout the programme have laid a strong foundation for growth and I hope a lasting impact on mental health worldwide.

Since the completion of the programme I have kept in touch with my incredible support network of founders, mentors and the Allia team. I continue to grow my team and have also been welcomed back to be a guest speaker at some of the Allia events where I can share my story with their network and other aspiring founders.

I’m incredibly grateful for the amazing support and experiences I’ve had during the Allia Impact accelerator programme. The mentors and staff were fantastic, providing invaluable guidance on my journey. I cherish the close-knit group of founders I met and continue to stay in touch with them. I wholeheartedly recommend it to every aspiring entrepreneur seeking growth, meaningful connections and exceptional mentorship.”
