Philippine autism therapy app lands in Echelon’s Top 100

Homegrown Philippine app Mylo Speech Buddy, designed to empower individuals with speech delays and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), has secured a coveted spot among Echelon’s TOP100 Startups.

This recognition propels Mylo Speech Buddy into Echelon’s growth program, offering invaluable mentorship, investor access, and a platform for industry networking.

Vincent Rocha, the app’s founder and CEO, hailed the opportunity as a chance to “significantly expand our reach” and support a wider range of children with ASD.

“Being part of Echelon’s TOP100 Growth Program is an ‘ausome’ opportunity for Mylo Speech Buddy and for my fellow autism parents. This opportunity provides us with unparalleled access to investors and mentors who can help us scale our impact,” said Rocha.

Echelon X, hosted by e27, is a prominent Asian technology conference fostering collaboration and innovation within the region’s startup landscape. This year’s TOP100 program focuses on high-growth potential startups, providing a customized six-month program with expert coaching and valuable industry insights.

Mylo Speech Buddy joins a contingent of nine other Philippine startups selected for the program. Since March, these companies have participated in exclusive events and gained access to a network exceeding 800 potential investors.

Established in July 2023, Mylo Speech Buddy collaborates with medical professionals like speech pathologists and occupational therapists to deliver targeted speech therapy and support for children on the autism spectrum.
