Techstars partners with Pivotal Ventures to launch “Future of Longevity Accelerator”

Here’s a new accelerator that baby boomers like me can appreciate.

Techstars and the Melinda Gates-backed Pivotal Ventures firm have teamed-up to launch the “Techstars Future of Longevity Accelerator.” Applications are being accepted through April 5, and the program itself will take place in Washington, D.C. in July and August. Ten start-ups will be accepted annually for a 13-week program. The focus, as you can imagine, is on innovative and creative caregiving solutions to address the unmet needs of individuals providing and receiving elder care.
