When did you start your business?
Incorporated in September 2019.
What's been your biggest highlight
Our biggest highlight has been speaking to older adults and family caregivers and seeing their delight and relief as we explain and demonstrate what we have built after speaking with them. Giving older adults agency, voice and greater independence and easing the stress for both professional and family caregivers has driven our thinking. On the professional service-provider's side there is a mixed welcome for an integrated care platform. They desire it and are waiting for an easy to use, intelligent platform. We aim that thriving.ai will be that platform.
What's been your biggest challenge?
The adult care giving market is highly fragmented and poorly invested in sector. There are a wide range of care needs that can be addressed. Focusing on a beachead has been challenging however we believe the B2B2C model for this market is the beachead for us. We are also looking for strategic partners to pilot and test our solution with and equally strategic investors who understand this market segment and can add value to our business and our strategic direction.
