A brief history

Since 2021, Empowered Together has been pioneering tech-enabled support for families affected by disability. We envision a world where tools and accommodations are in place for all people to meaningfully access and participate in their communities.

Sarah Spear

About the founder

While parenting her daughter with a developmental disability, Sarah Spear learned firsthand how isolating that journey can be and that other parents on similar journeys were feeling all alone. She recognized the value in sharing support and knowledge with one another and Empowered Together was born.

Sarah has a history of successfully building ventures, from leading PharmaSecure, a HealthTech company in India, through its Series A funding to being the first Executive Director of the Arch Grants startup competition in St. Louis. Her gift for facilitating community and corporate groups gets people to look at things in a different way, curiously engaging with their world. She brings her experience as an entrepreneur, facilitator, and most importantly, as a parent to Empowered Together.
