Calif. mental-health startup joins reSET

A Silicon Valley, Calif., mental-health startup will be among nearly two dozen young enterprises participating in a business-development program sponsored by reSET in Hartford.

LARKR's business model is to expand development of an app that provides real-time mental-health counseling between licensed professionals and patients via smartphones, officials said.

LARKR and 21 other fledgling enterprises will participate when reSET fields 90-second pitches from 22 participants chosen for reSET's four-month-long Impact Accelerator program from 5 to 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 16 at its offices at 1429 Park St.

ReSET typically focuses on nurturing primarily local Connecticut startups. However, LARKR's mission to revolutionize mental health care, and with Hartford as "the world's insurance capitol,'' the South Tahoe, Calif., company was invited to participate, said reSET Managing Director Ojala Naeem.

Veteran entrepreneur Shawn Kernes, a former executive of StubHub, eBay and other successful startups, is LARKR's founder and chief executive officer.
