My name is Ronit Molko, Ph.D., BCBA-D. There's a frenzy of investment activity in the autism services sector of the behavioural health industry. Why now? Ask me Anything.
How can investment in this growing industry serve to generate financial returns as well as advance autism services? And what's the impact on society if we don't do better?
My work has spanned almost three decades dedicated to providing and enhancing services for individuals on the autism spectrum and their families. After co-founding and scaling one of the largest autism service providers in CA, I sold my company to a private equity-backed strategic buyer. I now consult to service providers and advise investors on the autism market, and conduct diligence on specific companies targeted for acquisition by investors. My experience both as a clinician and as a businesswoman growing a large company serves to inform this market and interested investors.
With autism affecting 1 in 59 individuals, the autism services market is growing rapidly to meet the demand for services. Not all services are generating meaningful outcomes and many providers lack the ability to grow to meet the increasing need. Investors can advance the quality and availability of services.
I am passionate about ensuring that investment and services for this population make a meaningful difference in the lives of individuals with autism and that the professionals and investors who serve this population generate meaningful employment and business success.
