Prince Harry Is Now The “Chief Impact Officer” At A Corporate Coaching And Mental Health Tech Start Up

March 23, 2021 / Posted by:

Looks like Prince Harry can forget about trying to file for unemployment because he went and got himself a Jay Oh Bee. Or, more likely, he sat back in a Peter Brady patio chair, courtesy of Oprah Winfrey, batting away offers that didn’t have enough integers in them to sustain his accustomed lifestyle. According to CNN, Harry has accepted a job as “chief impact officer” at a Silicon Valley tech startup called BetterUp which provides “coaching and mental health services to clients” that normal people probably can’t afford. The company’s CEO Alexi Robichaux says that Harry has “a meaningful and meaty role.” Excuse me, it’s spelled R-O-L-L! Jesus, you’d think CNN would spell check their shit before it goes to print.

CNN reports:

The Duke of Sussex has joined Silicon Valley startup BetterUp as its chief impact officer, the company told CNN Business on Tuesday. A spokesperson for Harry also confirmed the prince’s new role.

BetterUp provides coaching and mental health services to clients. The company’s website lists Harry as part of its leadership team, describing him as a “humanitarian, military veteran, mental wellness advocate, and environmentalist.”

At BetterUp, Harry is expected to have input into product strategy decisions and charitable contributions, and advocate publicly on topics related to mental health, the newspaper reported. The newspaper said that BetterUp declined to comment on how much Harry would be paid.

How is he gonna be chief impact officer for a Silicon Valley startup when he can’t even keep an Instagram account going for more than a couple of weeks? Does he even tweet? Here is a tweet from Omid Scobie, Harry and his wife Meghan Markle‘s unofficial spokesperson, who is not making this move seem any more palatable from a humanitarian standpoint. But I get it. Princes got to eat too. They just have very expensive taste. Not everybody is satisfied with just having a meaty roll for brekky.

At any rate, Tech Bro Harry has already proven himself adept at the jargony, buzz word mumbo jumbo of the industry. Harry’s already earned whatever ungodly salary they are paying him, with a blog post he wrote for the company’s website.

The prince expanded on his reasons for joining BetterUp in a company blog post, saying he recognized a “shared passion” for helping people in Robichaux.

“What caught my attention about BetterUp was that the company’s mission to unlock the potential in people everywhere necessitates innovation, impact, and integrity. Their team has been delivering on that work for years,” said Harry.

Harry also said he had personally benefited from coaching provided by BetterUp.

“I’ve personally found working with a BetterUp coach to be invaluable. I was matched with a truly awesome coach who has given me sound advice and a fresh perspective,” Harry said in the blog post.

Between this, the Netflix deal and the Spotify deal, I can’t wait for Harry and Meghan’s first trip back to England where they will indignantly march into Buckingham Palace with shopping bags filled to the brim with wads of cash, jewels, and tiaras and get all up in Prince William and Prince Charles‘ faces Pretty Woman style like “Big mistake. Huge!
