We help the queer community find and book queer-competent mental healthcare.
Description of impact:
|We launched Violet in February 2020 to validate our thesis that queer people want help finding queer-competent care. Since inception, we’ve helped ~30 LGBTQ+ clients access more than $20,000 in mental healthcare. A subset of our clients reside in long island and utilize Violet to access queer-competent providers in New York City. We’re very proud of being able to help our community invest in ourselves.|
Our plan for the rest of 2020 is to fundraise and scale our MVP. We’re working to launch an overhauled product in 2021 that will support a much larger audience throughout NYC, which houses the largest concentration of LGBTQ+ people in the US. We’re also scoping partnerships with large insurers, like my prior employer — Oscar, to make queer-competent care more accessible.
