Hey SendBird community We’re excited to be here and so cool to see you have a community! Hope we can be helpful!
Our Background (as a company):
inRecovery is an addiction recovery platform that helps healthcare providers and hospital systems become “tech-enabled”. We serve as their backbone and help make the treatment experience more personalized through the use of data. Additionally, being their infrastructure, we help them adopt point-solution really fast via API’s. Really modernizing our antiquated “legacy” healthcare system. We believe in collaboration, so we help plugin other startups with amazing technology.
We go full circle by helping everyone win, starting with the patient:
- Patients have a much more meaningful and personal experience.
- Families stay more connected with their loved ones during treatment
- Clinicians leverage our tech to become even more amazing at their jobs.
My background (personal):
I’m a serial tech entrepreneur. Started coding around 8 yo, mainly from being massively bullied lol. Computers never kicked my butt, so I stuck to them. As a result, I had my first e-commerce startup acquired when I was 25, by Insight Venture Partners. Later founded one of the first mobile commerce platforms, taking a bet we’d all be shopping on our phones in the future. Turned out to be right and Magento bought us in 2011.
After my second exit, I moved to NY and tried drugs for the first time. I quickly became very addicted to cocaine and later to every drug I could get my hands on, including heroin. Long story short, I spent my 30th bday homeless, extremely addicted and pretty much without hope. Thankfully I got back on my feet, built a consulting firm and was back to “normal”, but I remained heavily addicted to drugs for many years.
In 2016, my best friend passed away from an overdose and that woke me up and I checked myself into rehab. During treatment, I found a major need for tech innovation and had the vision for what is now inRecovery. I truly feel I found my passion there, finally a way to put my talents to good use. Shortly after, founded inRecovery and fast forward 2.5 years - we have an awesome team, great product and we’re crushing it.
inRecovery proudly powers the 2nd largest treatment center in the US and doing our part to help people beat addiction and reintegrate as thriving members of society.
Really excited to start on our journey with Sendbird. It looks like an awesome platform but most importantly you guys seem to have a great team and culture there, which is the most important factor for us.
Happy to contribute to the developer community. Our team has tons of experience in and love React and React Native We’re ultimately a bunch of tech nerds and engineers, including myself
