The caregiver shortage is growing, but a lot of caregivers are leaving the industry, especially during COVID. What is the best solution? Probably an on-demand economy.

Caribou creates software for home care companies that helps them recruit and retain caregivers with referral and incentive programs.

As CTO that works with customers the same as on the technical part, Timothy shares his advice on both his startups related to healthcare, how to define how much to pay for a solution that nothing like this existed before, and how to choose a team that can give you great results.

And also, why should project managers be involved very early on in the sales cycle?
