Oren Frank is an Israel born national who currently resides in New York. During his young age, Frank had a great passion for innovation and technology as he believed they were the solution to many society epidemics. As an avid believer of the power of technology, Oren and his wife started Talkspace, a leading provider of affordable and accessible online and mobile psychotherapy.

This is where the idea of Talkspace was sparked.
