DotCom Therapy® announced their spot on Entrepreneur Magazine’s 360™ list recognizing The Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America. DotCom Therapy’s innovative work in education and health technology offers unparalleled access to quality therapy services through an encrypted, web-based platform. The company, founded by two entrepreneurial speech-language pathologists, earned the spot due to an evaluation of overall "impact, innovation, growth, and leadership.”
Although co-founders Emily Purdom and Rachel Robinson did not start out in the field of business, they created DotCom Therapy to serve the therapy industry they initially worked in. DotCom Therapy became a solution to an ever-growing problem Purdom and Robinson encountered as therapists themselves. Purdom observes that "student needs are drastically disproportionate to therapist capacity in many areas across the country, the influx of telepractice programs within schools is allowing students, parents, staff and community members access to therapy services that are otherwise simply not feasible.” DotCom Therapy’s work is not only changing the traditional structure of education and health technology, it is improving the traditional system by establishing a qualified, accessible workforce. Purdom notes, "through a telepractice partnership with [DotCom Therapy], we are growing alongside schools to decrease on-site staff caseloads and serve students with disabilities in the capacity and frequency they require to succeed.”
During the initial development of DotCom Therapy, Purdom and Robinson’s entrepreneurial spirits were quickly put to the test and proved resilient and successful. Purdom and Robinson wanted to test their platform (and idea) in a location with the most extreme need. They took their work to the schools of rural Alaska, and after a year-long pilot program, determined the company a viable and necessary concept. Fast forward to 2017, The female founded organization has scaled to around 100 employees offering services in 20 states and 5 countries.
Purdom and Robinson’s backgrounds as therapists affords them a unique perspective in the industry which lends to the overall success of their company and the satisfaction of their remote workforce. This year, DotCom Therapy rolled out comprehensive health benefits making them the industry leader of benefits within a remote work culture and organization. Offering therapy services to everyone, everywhere is the company mission, but for Purdom and Robinson, making sure DotCom Therapy is the top choice for therapists is a significant priority. According to the co-founders, the backbone of the company, and part of the reason for the growing success every year is the staff. Robinson notes that her and Purdom "use [their] company constitution as a northern light focusing on building trust, respect and support within the organization and industry.”
As DotCom Therapy continues to impact the industry, Robinson and Purdom will stay true to their mission as therapists, entrepreneurs, and co-founders:
"We want to be visible founders, sharing the journey of entrepreneurship and advocacy for improving access to healthcare services. Co-founder is a role we are humbled to have and we hope to lead the organization to its greatest impact."
