Tech Week | Startup School: Community As Your Competitive Advantage

February 26, 2021 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm EST


About This Event

This session is part of GA’s Tech Week, a weeklong festival of free workshops, panel discussions, and interactive events exploring emerging technology and how it intersects with other industries.

Connecting younger people to older people – that’s how Andrew Parker, co-founder and CEO of Papa, has been able to fundraise from big-name investors Alexis Ohanian and Ashton Kutcher.

Parker founded the fast growing startup in 2017 after watching his grandfather, whom he called Papa, suffer from dementia. When he started, he didn’t realize the market potential. Then he dove deeper into the numbers, and realized that in 2017, 10,000 people were turning 65 a day. In 2020, that’s reached 11,000 daily.

With monthly growth rates of over 20% since inception, Papa is marrying purpose and profit. Joins us to hear lessons every entrepreneur must learn,


  1. How to build a startup that is balancing humanity and technology
  2. Fundraising tips and tricks
  3. Modern Startup Culture for companies under 5 years
