Near Technology, Inc. is a Northwestern University-spinout startup providing personalized tech coaching to enable all individuals to use technology to stay connected with their loved ones, stress-free.
Once retired, our parents and others like them lose access to back-office IT support that used to be responsible for maintaining their digital upkeep. With nowhere to run, many rely on their younger family members for support, which often turns into frustrating conversations especially when they're geographically distanced from their loved ones. Consequently, many feel disempowered and fearful when using technology. We know there's got to be a better way.
