Dallas, TX (PRWEB) September 04, 2013
After a strong launch in Texas, Cariloop was invited to participate in the inaugural class of Health Wildcatters, a Dallas-based accelerator program recently spun off of the Forbes Top 10 ranked Tech Wildcatters program.
As part of their program involvement, Cariloop will receive $30,000 of seed funding from the organization’s investors. Over the next three months, the Texas-based startup company will focus on improving and successfully scaling their product and business with insightful input from a variety of coaches, mentors, healthcare professionals, and investors. With over 100 customer users in Texas, Cariloop is set up to take full advantage of this program, and scale nationally.
“We believe that Cariloop can have a very significant impact on how patients and senior care givers connect and introduce a change to an industry that has been very inefficient. They were selected from about 100 applicants, so clearly they already have made a big impression on us, our mentors and our investors,” said Dr. Hubert Zajicek, Executive Director & Co-founder of Health Wildcatters.
Cariloop's digital platform helps seniors and caregivers access information about geriatric care provider availability, pricing, and services. Cariloop is led by Michael Walsh, who is also the Founder of HealthSparx and Health 2.0 Dallas, as well as Steven Theesfeld, CPHQ and Andrew Taylor.
