12 'must watch' startups in the Triangle

The Raleigh health-tech startup aims to disrupt the “broken system of care,” by connecting clients with affordable care from pre-health college students. The goal? To address the caregiver shortage. Cofounded by Neal Shah and Gavry Eshet, the online marketplace it’s created to connect families with affordable elder care follows the gig economy format established by the likes of Lyft and Uber. The firm piloted its platform in 2022 at UNC-Chapel Hill, then North Carolina State University and Duke University. And as of earlier this year, it had already vetted and recruited 2,000 student caregivers and served 800 families across the Triangle.
