Jude Wang – E-kids
Taiwanese startup E-Kids helps the elderly with butler services built on psychotherapy principles. The innovative solution mimics having a companion at home, where youths can converse with the elderly, share information, and provide tech assistance and even entertainment for them – in a way, posing as surrogate children. Jude Wang is the founder and CEO of E-Kids, focusing on bringing mental health innovations to the mass markets. “I envision a future where people value each other’s physical and mental health, with infrastructure that mandates kindness and is conducive to healing. All components are vital to building a mentally healthy, accepting, forgiving, and healing future.”, said Jude. “E-Kids is the first step to that. We are not a digital therapeutics app; we are building a community that changes how we communicate, which leads the way to therapy for those who need it.”
