Homage, a Singapore-based provider of on-demand caregiving solutions to the elderly, raised US$1.2m in seed funding.
Backers included 500 Startups, Golden Gate Ventures, and SeedPlus.
The company intends to use the funds to fuel product development and expand operations.
Co-founded in 2016 by Gillian Tee, Lily Phang, and Tong Duong, Homage is a senior home care marketplace and technology platform connecting seniors to care on demand. The platform uses a proprietary matching engine that pairs seniors with care professionals for their needs in real-time. Family members can schedule, manage, and monitor care visits through the app from anywhere, stay in communication with the care professional and get real-time information on the care their senior is receiving.
