Whippersnapper is pursuing funding to get us to launch.
We're looking for the right partners.

 

Challenge

 

After retirement, older adults lose many of their social connections. Their health declines, their quality of life declines, their healthcare costs skyrocket.

By 2020, there will be 80 Million older adults 55+ in the us.

Solution

Help older adults sustain and build social connections.
The quality of social connections is the #1 determinate of health and quality of life.

 

 

Whippersnapper wants to transform the experience of aging in this country.
