I want to change the world.
My favorite startups:
Why did you start your company or why do you want to innovate inside your company?
As people age, families need solutions to care for their loved ones that improve quality of life and peace-of-mind. My 86 year old mother has fallen 3 times and I want to know when she's well and when she needs help. Our vision is to empower millions of people to care for their loved ones and live safely and happily at home. There is a huge business opportunity to use technology to lower the cost of healthcare while enabling seniors to live longer, healthier and more fulfilling lives.
