Each year, Google hosts a group of startups from across the Americas to pitch in San Francisco, and in 2018, D.C. has its own startup heading out there to represent the DMV.
Linked Senior, a D.C.-based senior care tech startup, will join 10 other companies on March 28 for Google Demo Day. To qualify, startups must be incorporated in North America or South America, have raised at least $100,000, be seeking to actively raise between $1 million and $5 million within the next six months and have demonstrated traction (through fundraising, revenue, customer growth and other metrics).
While Google Demo Day doesn’t offer any financial incentives to participants, many who have pitched in the past have gone on to raise millions in funding and a few have been acquired by leading companies including Glassdoor, Vista Equity Partners and Circle. For the past two years, Steve Case has also offered all Demo Day participants the chance to receive $100,000 if they were able to raise $1 million in the 100 days following the event.
Founded in 2007, Linked Senior creates a cloud-based dementia and therapy engagement platform for senior care. The SaaS product, with an app that runs on a TV-like piece of hardware, allows retirement home residents to listen to a library of 63,000 audiobooks, language lessons, music, news reports, games and other programs. Each product’s offerings are tailored to the specific resident’s health needs.
Linked Senior was nominated by Aging2.0, a mission-driven accelerator in San Francisco and partner for Google Demo Day. Here’s who all is pitching at the March 28 event (all descriptions are provided by Google): Read more from americaninno.com…
