Akhu Therapeutics, Inc. - Startup - Ibis Icon
Sacred Ibis – Ancient Symbol of Intelligence

Akhu Therapeutics, Inc. is a pharmaceutical startup company. Our tag line is “Better Medicine for Anxiety and Depression.

Our name comes from the ancient Egyptian word, “akh” (light or intelligence). Throughout history, light has been used to symbolize intelligence, and it was first depicted that way in and around the Nile Valley more than 4,700 years ago. We are building a startup that seeks to shed light on mental illness, and take intelligent approaches to coping with it.

Because medicine alone is not enough to lift the burden that mood and anxiety disorders impose upon society, we will also campaign for mental health awareness, suicide prevention, and ending the stigma of mental illness.

Akhu Therapeutics was incorporated on October 28, 2015. We are based in College Station, Texas with a combination of nine employees and consultants.
