Village Capital selected ten startups for its US healthcare cohort.
The startups are using technology to tackle issues including remote rehab and preventive care (Moving Analytics), early detection of deterioration (Nonnatech), and care provider and caregiver matchmaking services (Reciprocare).
Village Capital launched the health startup program with Kaiser Permanente to focus on care for an aging population. The US’s over-65 population will reach 88.5 million in 2050 — double its size in 2010. “Too many Americans don’t have the opportunity to age in their home and with dignity,” says Village Capital’s Allie Burns.
At the end of the program in July, participants will vote to choose two startups to receive $75,000 investments.
