On April 20-21 we’ll be hosting this year’s EU-Startups Summit in Barcelona! Our annual flagship event will gather over 2,000 founders, startup enthusiasts and investors for two exciting days of networking, inspiration and learning. And we can’t wait to welcome you there.
In addition to a buzzing exhibition hall, great networking opportunities, and an exciting pitch competition, we’ll also have two stages where you’ll be able to learn from over 70 speakers and listen to educational and inspiring talks by internationally successful founders.
Based in London, thymia exists to break the stigma around mental health, making it as objectively measurable as physical health. The startup uses specially designed video games to analyse speech patterns, facial expressions and behaviour to objectively measure mental health symptoms, starting with depression. It empowers clinicians to assess depression faster and more accurately – meaning patients are better diagnosed and can get the treatment they need when they need it.
Dr Emilia is a neuroscientist with a PhD & post-doc from UCL in Linguistics, Neuroscience & Psychology. She is a visionary expert in using language as a biomarker for cognition – there are fewer than 10 people in the world doing exactly what she does. Emilia won the Young Innovator’s Award 2020-21, has given a Ted Talk and was recently named one of the top scientists for mental health worldwide.
Her passion for improving approaches to mental health care led her to build thymia in 2020 and we are really looking forward to hearing her insights on this vitally important topic. The rate of founder burnout is at a scarily high level and mental health care is something we all need to be more aware of on a daily basis.
