Final Event: Teams Announced

Hello CGH2.0 Community,

We’ve selected three top teams to present at our final event, Mental Health Tech in 2020 to be held on September 8th at 1pm PT/4pm ET



We spent over a month reviewing every project submission, following up with team leads, and advising a small number of participants. After careful consideration and recommendations from mentors, the following teams will be featured during Tuesday’s event: 

  • Big & Mini: a nonprofit that created an online platform to connect seniors (Bigs) with young people (Minis) to share life lessons, experiences, and stories
  • CareCards: a collection of card-based, interactive psychological tests that help people learn more about their emotional state
  • OpenABA: a telehealth tool for childhood autism therapists

These teams will be part of a larger conversation on how startups are responding to mental health and social challenges during a pandemic, alongside late stage founders of health tech companies, 7 Cups and Quartet Health


We’d also like to recognize four honorable mention teams, who have made immense strides in support of accessible mental health & wellness for local, youth, and Native communities:

  • Afya Bora: an appointment scheduling platform that will allow Tanzanian residents to schedule an in-person or online appointment with a general physician or specialist
  • Calm On!: A prototype mobile adventure game that promotes emotional intelligence and healthy mental health habits
  • HalcyonDays: A time visualizer and task organizer inspired by Parkinson’s Law and encourages rest to boost productivity
  • ShockTalk: A prototype telehealth platform that will offer teletherapy services for Native peoples by Native providers


Thank you to all the teams for your participation! As you continue building, we encourage you to update your portfolios and stay connected with us on Facebook.

We look forward to seeing you at the event on Tuesday!
