Hollo is a social tech enterprise based in Hong Kong. We're developing a comprehensive tool for NGOs and their therapists to advance the norm of therapy practices using technology such as Big Data and AI.
We hold two value propositions close to our heart.
Hollo equips youths living with mental illnesses, who cannot capture their experiences consistently, with a smart CBT-compliant companion app; to provide low cost self-help and journaling process to aid their own journey.
Hollo equips therapists (and their NGOs), who don’t have consistent, quality patient feedback to aid retentive treatment, with a back-end platform equipped with empirical and actionable findings on their patients; using the data analysis to enhance time efficiency, and construct predictive models.
Our diverse team comes from The University of Hong Kong, cultivated from three different faculties. Our team entering the Imagine Cup involves two of our Co-founders (Cameron our CEO and Piyush our CTO), along with our Chief Clinical Consultant (Natalie). Our third Co-founder & CPO (Ajit) will be supporting our team back in Hong Kong. Bringing a powerhouse team involving Entrepreneurship, Computer Science and Psychology to Imagine Cup; we believe that we will be able to convince the judges, and the public, that not only is Mental Health a significant problem to resolve in society, but that we are the best team to do it.
