Faye Sahai


TECH FOR GOOD

Faye has chosen to take her life experience and combined experience in healthcare and in technology to create a better world for young adults struggling with mental health issues. She is the managing director of Telosity Fund, which is investing in digital wellness for young people. Research shows that over the last decade, educators, paediatricians, and parents have seen an increase of anxiety, depressions, and stress in young people – even more so now due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This fund harnesses technology to shift this trend to one where more young people are mentally well and equipped to handle the challenges and stressors.  

Faye and the team demonstrate their focus on identifying and funding scalable tech-enabled interventions that do at least one of the following -  

1.  increase access to care and support services for mild to moderate sufferers of anxiety and depression, 

2. cultivate self-care habits that increase mental wellness 

3. bolster social and emotional skills and positive behavior, and  

4. foster positive online experiences and interactions. 

This fund stood out to our judges as we all want every young person to have the opportunity to live a healthy life. Well done to Faye and the whole Telosity team.
