Announcing the Founder Series Podcast
July was a strong month of Seed to Series B deals with 13 different transactions, in addition to 3 acquisitions. Notably absent were late-stage venture deals. Is this a blip or a sign of things to come? Only time will tell but remember, senior care has traditionally been recession-proof when the economy goes south—older adults lean harder on support services increasing the need for Agetech solutions.
In other news, we are excited to announce the launch of our very own podcast! Starring in this venture is Sarah Thomas of Delight by Design, a consulting firm which specializes in assisting Agetech startups. Sarah has been an integral part of the Agetech News team since its founding, helping drive this field from niche to mainstream.
Unlike the other podcasts out there we're not going to feature industry experts or investors. Instead we're focusing on founders, the individuals who are dedicating their lives to improving different parts of the aging experience. The reasons behind their missions are incredible; their goals are ambitious and inspiring.
Subscribe to the Agetech News Founder Series Podcast and tune in every Friday to hear directly from the entrepreneurs who are changing the way we age.
