The Beginnings of BetterUp

Alexi Robichaux, BetterUp
With Toby Corey, Stanford University

BetterUp CEO and co-founder Alexi Robichaux traces the origin of BetterUp to two interests that have been with him since high school: coding and peer-to-peer coaching. He describes how a period of burnout led him to envision a digital solution that would blend the expertise and rigor of clinical psychology with the business context of executive coaching.
