Start-up company Elder has made it to this year's list of UK's fastest-growing tech companies that will be featured in the most recent edition of The Sunday Times Sage Tech Track 100. The companies were chosen for their contribution during the pandemic, from supporting the NHS to enabling remote monitoring.
Pete Dowds, Elder Founder and CEO, said: "COVID-19 has presented an unprecedented challenge to everyone working in the social care space. It's a challenge that, as a tech-enabled care company, we were uniquely positioned to meet.
"This listing is a testament to the amazing work of everyone connected to Elder. Whether that's the heroic efforts of the carers of the flexibility and hard-work of those working in our support team. I couldn't be prouder."
Elder has provided protective equipment and support to carers by hosting virtual get-togethers. The firm also partnered with Zipcar and Uber to ensure that they could travel safely for less. The firm was recently praised by commissioners for its collaboration with Brighton and Hove Council for enabling elderly people to get back to their safety of their homes freeing up numerous hospital beds for Covid-19 patients in the process.
