AI Mental Health Platform Wysa Raises $2.2M

Indian wellness startup Wysa has announced a ~$2.2m Seed round last month. This funding round was led by pi Ventures, with participation from Kae Capital and other investors.

Established in 2015 by Jo Aggarwal and Ramakant Vempati, Wysa is an emotionally sensitive AI buddy for behavioral health. “Wysa is… your 4 am friend. For when you have no one to talk to…Sometimes you need to talk things through – and there is no one who will just listen. Everyone seems to have an opinion or analysis of your situation, when all you need is someone who has your back while you figure things out. Wysa gets that.”

Bottom Line: Wysa has helped over 1.2m people from 30+ countries, making it one of the global leaders in AI for mental health.
