Co-founded by Seth Sternberg, CEO, Sandy Jen, and Cameron Ring, Honor is launching a platform to connect seniors and their families with caregivders. The service screens caregivers, which are then matched to seniors based on their expertise. In addition, families receive information about who takes care of their people and what activities they do, as well as how long the caregiver is at the home.

Launching in April in Contra Costa County, California, the service will soon expand throughout the entire San Francisco Bay Area.
