Hi, I’m Solome.

I’m a social entrepreneur, digital health investor, and behavioral health technology strategist.

I’m a former anxious teen who has built non-profit and for-profit startup organizations aimed at changing how we deliver mental healthcare. I’m eager to help youth, adults and professionals connect on important issues around tech, mental health, digital citizenship and more. Today, I’m also an investor in digital health technologies transforming physical and behavioral health for populations of all backgrounds.

I work with passionate organizations, universities and associations who want to change the conversation around mental health. Gen Z and Millenials are leveraging technologies in ways that we could never have imagined just a few short years ago, and it’s making a big impact on our mental health. Healthcare providers, payers and patients are demanding new and innovative solutions to address the growing national behavioral healthcare costs.

Looking to energize your audience? Want to have a lasting impact?
Work with me for your next event.
