David Champion

CEO of Maya

We are laying the foundation for psychedelic medicine to scale safely and ethically.

Maya is a Colorado Public Benefit Corporation (PBC), which means our team members, advisors, and investors prioritize purpose over profit.

Following our involvement helping Denver become the first city to decriminalize psilocybin mushrooms, and our participation in events, presentations, and dinner tables, we have become friends with the global community of psychedelic practitioners and researchers.

From listening to our allies, we found was that there was a gap between the knowledge that was being gathered in academic research and the real world evidence that providers observe in their practice. We know that bridging this gap and advancing our understanding of safe and effective psychedelic practices hinges on technological solutions. That’s why we started Maya.

Maya is a real world data platform designed to connect psychedelic providers, participants, and researchers. Together, our global community is charting a knowledge base that can inform safe and accessible psychedelic practices.

The Maya platform is the result of more than two years working with our community,  as this community grows, we will grow with it. We promise to uphold integrity, to honor the lineages of tradition, and to safeguard the flow of data so that it can be used for the benefit of all humankind.

There is much important work to be done in understanding how psychedelic medicines can be utilized safely while maximizing the benefit. I believe the work Maya and its team are doing is exceptional in this regard. It is exactly what is needed to help positively shape the industry while supporting us all to reach a greater stage in human development.

One of Maya’s major contributions is to make it more of the norm for practitioners to collect data, so they are able to demonstrate the value of psychedelic therapy.
