Take a Look at the Top VCs Funding the 50+ Market

From managing their diets online to communicating with doctors through apps, the 50+ population is embracing digital health tools like never before. Together with our partners at AARP, we took a deep dive into this nearly $1.5B market to identify the most active investors and top trends in the sector. One of the biggest findings? Half of all investments in digital health impact the 50+ population in some way. The report is free to download and analyzes activity in the industry across AARP’s nine areas of innovation. We’re excited for more entrepreneurs and investors to explore potential opportunities in this rapidly growing space!
