Headway founder leads new startup

Headway founder Jake Sussman is heading up a new youth-focused behavioral health startup, according to TechCrunch.

The new venture, Marble, provides virtual therapy for teens with a licensed therapist. The company promises to get patients an appointment within four days. It also accepts “all insurances”—including Medicaid. The provider offers individual therapy, group therapy, and family services.

The platform works with schools to help counselors refer children and teens needing care.

According to TechCrunch, the provider has raised $5 million in seed funding from Khosla Ventures, Town Hall Ventures, IA Ventures, Daybreak Ventures and Lorimer Ventures.

Before starting Marble, Sussman led the patient-matching platform Headway, worth more than $1 billion.
