Techstars launches elder care-focused accelerator

BOULDER — Boulder-based startup accelerator Techstars announced Monday the launch of the Techstars Future of Longevity Accelerator, a program that supports companies seeking to innovate the elder-care industry. 

The new Washington-based accelerator is a partnership with Pivotal Ventures, an investment and incubation company founded by Melinda Gates.

“With generations living longer than ever before, there is an incredible opportunity for innovation within the caregiving space. This market is experiencing unprecedented economic growth as the American 50+ population is already responsible for trillions of dollars of spending and economic activity,” Techstars senior vice president of accelerators Keith Camhi said in a prepared statement. “There could not be a better time to bring an accelerator focused on innovation in this sector to market. We are thrilled to be working with Pivotal Ventures to help startups achieve success in delivering new life-changing and impactful solutions to meet the needs of our aging population.”
