We are starting to understand the gaps that exist online to support teen wellbeing, as well as how young people are using technology when they are feeling stressed, anxious, or depressed. Teens use digital places to build relationships, find support, and to develop social and emotional skills. The majority of social technologies weren’t designed with these complex and sensitive objectives. During this session, you'll meet four entrepreneurs who are building the future of social technologies.
