Show Notes

Tyler Beaty is an entrepreneur, human-centered designer, and the co-founder and CEO of Sero health. With over 10 years of experience building tech ventures, Tyler’s portfolio includes some impressive achievements such as completing the renowned Draper University entrepreneurship program and working as a brand strategist with tech startups where he worked on world-changing problems such as impacting world hunger via insect protein, improving connection via virtual reality, and building defense systems against drone attacks. However, despite some perfect on paper milestones, it was his own deeply human life experience around mental health that shaped his passion and path with his latest and most meaningful venture, Sero.

After suffering from burnout, overwhelm, and ADHD while scaling his digital design agency he started to notice how his mental wellbeing affected everything, including his physical health. He was diagnosed with GERD, depression, substance abuse, and anxiety, but it was only after coming face to face with suicidality that he knew he had to make a serious change. Lifestyle changes to help bring balance were supportive but it wasn’t until he discovered EMDR therapy that he witnessed breakthroughs. Once he realized how powerful yet inaccessible EMDR therapy was, he knew he had to make a dent in the problem. With that, he Co-Founded Sero, a remote-first, accessible platform and product for EMDR therapy.
