“We connect new economy companies with senior business talent and experts.” “…a pathway for talented seniors to get engaged in the new economy.”
“…to promote the talents and expertise of older adults and ensure this great resource wasn’t being left untapped.”
“Maybe the entrepreneur needs a door open somewhere and one of our seniors has that connection available Sometimes we have senior talent engaged in a mentorship capacity or an advisory capacity or on a project basis with an innovative company and other times they sit on the boards providing their experience in that way and we also connect entrepreneurs to capital.”
