Ada's List provided the vital support I needed when setting up my mental wellbeing app Write Mynd

Lizzie Barclay is founder of Write Mynd, based in London, UK. She joined Ada's List in October 2015.

It gave me emotional support - such as the confidence to create something ambitious on top of my day job - as well as practical support. I found testers for my MVP on Ada's List, I heard about health-tech communities that I could learn from and Ada's List members offered to write for my blog and spread the word when we launched. It was inspiring to see what can be built from nothing when well-connected, smart people are interested in products for good causes.

Quite simply, Write Mynd probably wouldn't exist if it hadn't been for Ada's List."
