Cariloop Launch Featured By Health 2.0
Cariloop’s launch was recently featured by Laura Montini from Health 2.0. Co-Founder Michael Walsh sat down with Laura to chat about how Cariloop has approached aggregating data as they launched first in the state of Texas. The first excerpt from the article is below.
Talk about a lucky break. Recently a new startup relocated from the Midwest down to Dallas, Texas. To the founders’ surprise, they learned that their new home state already possessed a stash of data that they could use to get their own database off the ground.
This isn’t the first time that a startup has benefitted from a preexisting public dataset. There is an entire conference dedicated to highlighting the ones that have. Now Cariloop, which launched just last week, is a member of the club.
“I was able to go straight to the state of Texas and say, this is what we’re doing,” Cariloop cofounder Michael Walsh said. “We’re trying to help people better shop and be better educated about what they need in terms of geriatrics and senior care. Can you help us understand the market here in Texas? And they were like, sure, we have a complete database. Here you go.”
