Help others.

Help yourself.

Mayo is a research-backed startup dedicated to improving engagement and pro-social behavior in co-working spaces.


What is Mayo?


Mayo is a location-based communication app that makes it easy to help people in your community.


Mayo” is the phonetic spelling for 没有 (or Méiyǒu) which means “not have” in Mandarin.



How does Mayo work?

  • Respond to a request for help or post what you need help with.

  • If you get a match, you can message the person to figure out where to meet.

  • Your posts expire when you leave the area, or after 1 hour

  • No sign ups required, no channels to join, and no notifications after you leave.

Why should I help people on Mayo?


1. because you are great and that’s what great people do.

2. you would be helping (and meeting) your fellow SPACES family.

3. there is a large and growing body of research that shows that helping others results in substantive mental health benefits


Additional benefits to helping others

  • Reduced stress-related activity in dorsal anterior cingulate cortex, right anterior insula, and right amygdala.



With Mayo, our goal is to make it easy to find the little everyday opportunities around you to get these mental health benefits (we like to call them “micro-helps”).

Whether it’s lending someone an iPhone charger, or helping to debug some code, Mayo makes it easy to help others in your community all while making your brain better.



So lend a quick hand.
Help your brain.
