At Spock Ventures, we believe that well designed technology-based products and services can help older adults do precisely that—live their best lives.
With good health, companionship and connection, meaning, dignity, and happiness, a long life is rewarding.
By any measure, a human life is short. So at Spock, we invest in technology-based solutions that help older adults do more—whatever more is.

The U.S. 65+ demographic is expected to grow at a 6% CAGR through 2060. By 2030 one in five residents will be over 65. Baby boomers aging into this cohort is just one factor. Increasing longevity and decreasing birth-rates compound the trend.
In the U.S., Baby Boomers, the Silent Generation, and the generations before them represent about 40% of the population but control 70% of the wealth. Older adults are expected to spend money on their longevity and quality of life.
About 51 million Americans with severe medical conditions require caregiving, costing ~$264 billion annually and growing. Novel solutions that reduce the burden of caregiving while improving care represent a significant opportunity.
