SAN FRANCISCO, June 4, 2018 -- Caressa, the voice-based social media company for connecting seniors to their family, friends, and the world, joins Nex Cubed Summer Founders Program today.
"By 2030, 1/5th of the population will be seniors and 70% of them live alone, we must assure their social, emotional, and physical well-beings for their family and friends," said John Huang, CEO of Caressa. "Forging that family bond with seniors in mind has profound impacts in our rapidly aging society, which aligns precisely with the mission of Nex Cube."
Nex Cubed backs bold entrepreneurs who are willing to take serious risks to solve real problems by empowering them to bring new technologies to market, helping companies to scale, and providing paths to liquidity - the power of three.
"We are excited to welcome the Caressa team to our Summer Founders Program. We believe they are well positioned to realize their mission of making technology more accessible for seniors", said Marlon Evans, CEO of Nex Cubed.
By leveraging the vast resources available at Nex Cubed, Caressa expects to accelerate its efforts to improve the social life of seniors living independently.
