Otta's take

Xav Kearney headshot

Xav Kearney

CTO of Otta

Mindstep is an application that screens and manages brain and mental health issues through smartphones.

Mindstep has built its app on mobile devices, making the app very accessible and able to deliver simple, effective care more easily.

Through people using Mindstep, they can generate a lot of data detailing how a healthy brain should look. They use this data for medical research.

Neurological disease and mental health issues affect nearly 1 billion people worldwide, and Mindstep says 75% of people do not receive a diagnosis or treatment. If Mindstep is able to build a new way of diagnosing and managing these diseases earlier and more easily, they have the potential to build a very significant business.
