The Hustler’s Guide to Elder Care

Samantha Ludwig, Seth Sternberg, Ben Horowitz, and Shaka Senghor

Posted March 31, 2020

This is the next cycle (Q1 2020) of Hustlin’ Tech, a podcast series (from the a16z Podcast) about technology platforms that create opportunities for people. Recorded right before the coronavirus pandemic, these next 3 episodes touch on many things that are top of mind right now: from the profession of nursing; to taking care of the elderly; to fighting bureaucracy to get money and time back (and to get help delaying utility bills and rent payments that are eligible for an extension or waiver of late fees due to the coronavirus crisis).

Episode #5, “The Hustler’s Guide to Taking Care of Old Folks” features:

  • Seth Sternberg, CEO and co-founder of Honor, a home care company and national network of local home care agencies that brings high-touch, personalized care to elders while also scaling workforce management; matching special needs, skills, and unique demands; and offering tools that help caregivers with jobs and more.
  • Samantha Ludwig, a care professional who has always had a job thanks to Honor (and who journeyed from abroad as a foreign nurse);

…both interviewed by Ben Horowitz and Shaka Senghor.

You can find the first cycle of this series (Q4 2019) — including more about the what and the why — here.
