Eric Alvarez, the founder and CEO of Grapefruit Health, also recently won $20,000 at a TechRise competition. His company recruits nursing students to provide remote care to at-risk seniors living alone. With the new funding, Alvarez said he is now able to launch a pilot program to test his tech, showing that P33 is not only providing exposure to startups, but also meaningful amounts of capital.
“There’s a lot of programs out there that are very much ‘lip service’ programs,” Alvarez said. “What [P33] is doing is so awesome, impactful and far bigger than anything I’ve ever seen.”
