Learn to Live Summary
Learn to Live provides online self-help programs to address psychological problems such as depression, social anxiety, stress, anxiety and worry. Learn to Live is part of an exciting movement within behavioral health around providing lower cost but highly effective methods of web-based healthcare treatment. The programs are modeled on over a decade of clinical research that demonstrates that internet-delivered Cognitive Behavioral Therapy ("iCBT") is as effective as face-to-face therapy. In addition to providing programs directly to consumers, Learn to Live partners with employers, health care providers, insurers and universities – all of which can benefit from the low-cost delivery model, behavior tracking capabilities, data analytics, high engagement rates and powerful program outcomes. Find out more online at learntolive.com or follow Learn to Live on Twitter (@LearntoLiveCBT) and Facebook.

Where were you before the MN Cup?
Before the MN Cup, Learn to Live was generating revenue and the team was growing – and we were entering a new phase of fundraising in order to scale up more quickly.

What did MN Cup do for you?
The MN Cup was a terrific opportunity for us to receive validation on our business model from both business and industry experts. It also gave our team a platform from which we could tell our story. That platform, our association with such a well-respected program and the publicity we received from the Cup, played a meaningful role in our B2B sales and in our fundraising.

What’s next for Learn to Live?
We’re in the process of hiring more team members and preparing to move into a new office space. We’re also developing a new technology platform and building additional online behavioral health programs.
