How Sharpen Works
Beginning in 2014, Robyn and Tim Farrell began working to build a solution to help address the fractured networks of our current mental health epidemic. Tim and Robyn developed Sharpen: a cloud-based closed social networking application that allows any organization to rapidly deploy their own branded apps with custom content and user-stories that are appropriate for their constituents based on the markets they serve . Branding organizations also have access to an ecosystem of trusted partners with whom they can share resources and refer clients. Since launching the platform, Sharpen has worked with organizations like the United Way, Upstate Warrior Solution, Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine (VCOM), major educational institutions, and more to create unique solutions to serve their consumer bases.
Together, Robyn and Tim have received the following awards:
● 2017 Innovision Award
● 2018 Martin Luther King, Jr. Humanitarian Award
● 2018 Community Impact Award, UWS
● 2017 Mary L. Thomas Award Nominees
