MyCare Selected as a Rock Health CompanyCompany Takes on $60 Billion Market With Online Platform (December 20, 2011)
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/20/11 -- MyCare, an online marketplace that connects families with home caregivers, has been selected to join Rock Health's 2012 accelerator program. As one of 15 next generation health technology companies, MyCare will receive a startup grant and mentorship from top healthcare institutions, such as the Mayo Clinic and Harvard Medical School. MyCare will work with these leading medical institutions and other top health technology firms to transform the home caregiving market.
WHO: Through its comprehensive Web-based platform, MyCare is enabling access to affordable home care for every family. CEO John Vejnoska founded MyCare after experiencing firsthand the problems and inefficiencies associated with finding a compatible, qualified caregiver for his own loved ones, who suffer from ALS and Alzheimer's. To simplify the difficult process of finding the right caregiver, John has created a platform that allows families to search through a large selection of qualified caregivers in their area based upon likes, hobbies, personality, and certifications. Families can choose the most compatible caregiver with confidence and at a lower price over traditional brick-and-mortar agencies.
Rock Health is a group of dedicated individuals working to catalyze innovation in the interactive health space, and gain access to an unrivaled community of experts and seed-accelerator program.
WHEN: Rock Health announced the ten participants of its intensive program on Friday, December 16, 2011. The 5-month program begins in January 2012, and culminates with a demo day during the third quarter of 2012, during which MyCare and other program participants will pitch some of Silicon Valley's biggest investors.
WHERE: Both MyCare and Rock Health operate out of San Francisco, California.
