Founded by Jessica Kim, ’00, ianacare is a virtual app that consolidates and streamlines resources to encourage, empower, and equip family caregivers. Inspired by Kim’s own struggles with caring for her mother, the app seeks to alleviate the financial and emotional burdens of caretaking. Users can organize and mobilize friends and family onto one team for easy coordination of everyday errands, such as groceries, picking up medication from the pharmacy, and arranging transportation. The app is also compatible with employers. “iana” stands for “I am not alone.”
Kim has previously served as an Entrepreneur in Residence for the Nelson Center in 2018 – 19. The firm recently raised $12.1M in funding. You can read their Forbes profile here.
