Nathan Mallipeddi is the Founder and CEO of Myspeech, an international nonprofit, where he leads a team of ~50 members and ~200 volunteers in tackling two of most significant issues in the field of healthcare services in speech therapy—the lack of access to care and unaffordable prices. They are currently building a technology platform to scale therapy and community services to millions of people who stutter around the world. They’ve impacted ~25,000 people in 26 countries, with partnerships in 30 schools. Their partners include Fast Forward, Future Founders, Harvard Innovations Labs, Microsoft, Salesforce, Verizon, the Westly Foundation, Donald A. Strauss Foundation, UCLA SOLE, the World Stuttering Network, and many more.
Nathan and the team at MySpeech are building a resource platform offering people who stutter connections to affordable speech therapists, virtual events, educational videos, and a community network. They provide scholarships, build technology, and connect people who stutter and allies with community events around the world. By teaching self-advocacy, we empower people of all ages to overcome the barriers associated with stuttering.
