TCARE, a Madison-based healthcare startup, has had a busy year.
The startup raised $900,000 in seed funding in May, and participated in both gener8tor’s 12-week accelerator program and MassChallenge’s HealthTech accelerator in Boston.
When I interviewed TCARE co-founder and CEO Ali Ahmadi for this story, he was boarding a plane back to Madison from Connecticut, where TCARE had been competing with 22 other startups for a spot in the Hartford InsurTech Hub accelerator.
To put it simply, TCARE has been on a roll this year, which is why it was named one of Wisconsin Inno’s 50 on Fire.
TCARE makes software for health insurance providers that allows them to help caregivers take care of their sick and elderly family members at home for longer, as opposed to placing them in assisted living facilities. The startup was first developed in 2007 at UW-Milwaukee with a grant from the National Institutes of Health and fully commercialized in 2016. Read the full story here.
