About Kintsugi

Kintsugi Founders Grace Chang and Rima Seiilova-Olson earlier this year closed an $8M seed to set a new standard in access to mental healthcare [On Deck]. Kintsugi unlocks well-being by detecting clinical depression and anxiety from 20-seconds of free-form speech, closing mental health care gaps across risk-bearing health systems, saving time and lives. 

Together, we can transform mental health on a global scale. Kintsugi is developing smarter mental healthcare infrastructure using voice biomarkers to streamline access to care. Awarded multiple distinctions for novel AI technology through the National Science Foundation, we are shaping the future of the healthcare industry [Inc.] and creating a new era of equality and improved access to healthcare for everyone [MedCity News].

Kintsugi was recently featured in Google Voice Talks for being at the forefront of mental healthcare innovation in the voice biomarker space. Read more about us and what we’ve been up to in the Kintsugi Newsroom.
