Talha made the first aggressive moves with the business that would evolve into PushStart. We began with a name, a logo, and some branding. Simple and powerful, we wanted to evoke dynamism in our marketing strategy, appealing to high-energy, determined individuals.

The idea, despite its good intentions, was simply too unwieldy for a pair of undergrads to get off the ground. We had no training in mental health services, nor did we know our clientele or what services already existed
