Success within the first 60 days would entail being able to significantly drive the creation of a hybrid mobile application by building on Weal’s designs and wireframes through development and successful deployment in app stores for pilots.  Doing this would require developing a deep understanding of our vision, our customers, our users and how our mobile application meets their needs and provides social impact.

Weal Life (www.theweallife.com) is in the business of making it easier for people to take care of one another, especially during times of health crisis, chronic illness, or aging.  We are passionate about using technology to make caregiving a less overwhelming, more collaborative, and more joyful experience.  Whether you or someone you know has broken a leg or suffered from a stroke, finding help and managing those non-medical needs can be both stressful and isolating—trips to the doctor, meals, walks, prescription pickup, etc.

We are a small startup based in San Francisco and so deeply dedicated to our mission that we incorporated as a pioneering Public Benefit Corporation.  Our leadership team has decades of experience in healthcare, technology, social entrepreneurship, law, and private equity.  We are assembling a diverse team to build Weal’s beta product, a hybrid mobile application.
