While for-profit companies like atai Life Sciences can solve important parts of this crisis, there will never be a "one size fits all” route. The mind is as beautiful as it is complex, so we need as many solutions as possible.

This is why Christian created the AURORA Institute alongside his co-founders Louise Tabbiner and Henry Chalhoub.

AURORA’s mandate is to be the first non-profit incubator of its kind, focused on funding the world’s leading individuals and NGOs dedicated to solving the global mental health crisis.

AURORA does not want to re-invent the wheel: its goal is to amplify the efforts of those already doing the most impactful work. It offers existing non-profit organizations a platform to raise more money and awareness for their activities. 

AURORA launched its inaugural event “Evening of Discovery” on July 23rd, in Saint Tropez. Over 500 international attendees took part, including icons such as Robbie Williams, Kevin Love, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Queen Latifah.

Most importantly, more than USD 8m was raised.
