With increased pressure on access to mental health treatment, Superpow! wants to be an online therapy platform that shifts away from the clinical aspect of mental health treatment. The platform aims to help users find a matching therapist based on factors such as preferred language, ethnical background, sexual orientation, gender, age, symptoms. We aim to match you with a therapist quicker than any other app.
The app has the right solutions for what we perceive to be the main current issues within the industry: stigma, non-inclusive services for minorities, high costs & low flexibility related to time & location.
Superpow! will aim to deploy a strong B2B channel, helping large companies provide much needed support for employees. A staggering 70 million work days are lost each year due to mental health problems in the UK, costing employers approximately £2.4 billion per year.
We are a scalable, capital-light business. Our objective is to initially enter London's market, with plans to expand within the UK in year 2, rest of Europe in years 3 & 4 and US in year 5. We operate a simple business model: commission on each session booked.
Invest now and help us lift up the barriers we personally had to face in the past, so others don't have to come across the same obstacles. We require capital to finalise the app development & scale the business within our primary market.
Superpow! was developed by co-founders Gabriel & Andrei who, after living busy lives in London, experienced difficulties in finding a suitable platform for online therapy to help them overcome their own mental health issues. They are now ready to fight against stigma and use the power of their examples both as online therapy users and founders of a start-up with the aim of securing a strong market share.
