Earlier this year, 32 finalist startups from over 500 applicants entered the 2018 PULSE@MassChallenge accelerator program. According to a recent press release, the startups selected to participate in PULSE@MassChallenge are top digital health startups from around the world that have raised less than $5 million in funding and have generated less than $5 million in revenue.

"As we work to provide innovative solutions for people 50-plus we seek to collaborate with like-minded innovators who are focused on solving today's healthcare challenges," said Andy Miller, senior vice president of innovation and product development at AARP. "Folia Health, Orbita and Pillo are focusing on some of the biggest health issues of our day, including diabetes management, remote patient monitoring and social isolation. With 10,000 people turning 65 each day, these technology solutions align well with AARP's social mission to empower people to choose how they live as they age and we are encouraged by the work we've done together so far."
