In episode four, Anil talks with Rebecca Egger, the co-founder & CEO of Little Otter Health. You'll be able to hear what it's like to be right at the brink of achieving product-market fit and to be able to scale big with Little Otter having already raised $26 million. Rebecca launched the digital platform—which is focused on mental healthcare for children 14 years old and under—at the beginning of the pandemic.

Rebecca knows firsthand how one child's mental illness is a family ordeal, so Little Otter's holistic approach involves the entire family rather than just working with a child alone. Hear her interesting story from being diagnosed with ADHD at a young age to launching the company alongside her mother to turning her vision for the platform into reality.
