Making Psychological Care more Accessible w/ Rickard Lagerqvist, CEO & Co-Founder Mindler

Wed, Dec 1, 2021, 12:00 PM (CET)

About this event

44 percent of all sick leaves in Sweden are due to mental illness. In total, this costs the society between SEK 77 and 100 billion every year - but despite the fact that almost a third of primary care visits concern mental illness, only around three to four percent are allowed to see a psychologist for assessment and treatment according to national and international guidelines. In addition, a third of the country's health centers do not have a psychologist at all. This means that wherever in the country you live will determine if you can see a psychologist.

Mindler is changing this with its digital service through which you can quickly and easily book a video visit with a licensed psychologist from home, through your smartphone or tablet.

Welcome to our virtual fireside chat with Rickard Lagerqvist, CEO & Co-Founder Mindler where we discuss:

⭐ How was the journey from a doctor to an entrepreneur?

⭐ What are the struggles involved in seeking care for mental illness in Sweden?

⭐ Are there stigmas associated with mental illness? How do we break these down?

⭐ How did the Mindler idea start? Early struggles of building the startup?

⭐ What is Mindler's business model? Are you a platform or an employer for doctors?

⭐ Has it been easy to get funding for Mindler, especially the 150 mkr round you closed in June 2021?

⭐ How has the journey of international expansion turned out? Are challenges similar in other countries?

⭐ What have been the challenges from the regulatory side in building the startup?

⭐ Rickard's advice to upcoming entrepreneurs especially in health-tech!

The discussion will be moderated by Naimul Abd, Business Advisor & Partnerships Lead at Coompanion Stockholm, serial impact entrepreneur, and Director Startup Grind Stockholm.
