DC Startup Hurdle Looks to Grow Digital Mental Health Platform for the Black Community

Kevin Dedner

As a Black-led mental health service focused on serving Black clients, Hurdle centered racial justice even before nationwide anti-racism movements in 2020.

“Our narrative is very clear,” said Kevin Dedner, Hurdle’s founder and CEO. “We’re not a company that has to rebrand ourselves for this moment… Serving people and being a company that is interested in serving people of color is in our DNA.”

Dedner started Hurdle in 2018 after personal experiences with depression, work-induced exhaustion, and insensitive therapy sessions inspired him to create better mental health services for the Black community.
