About Sunbound

Sunbound is building the “financial OS for senior care”. The senior living market is over $230bn and is expected to grow rapidly as the “baby boomer” generation continues to age. Currently, broken senior care payments processes increase costs for operators and stress for families.

Sunbound was created to solve this problem by building the first modern platform to handle this process end-to-end and save operators and families time, money and effort. Our mission is to help families by reducing the cost and confusion of senior living, and we are building the team to provide senior living operators with tools for effortlessly tracking their operations and revenue, and for families to effortlessly pay for care. This will allow you to interact with, and design products for, both consumer and business end users.

Our tight-knit, dedicated team has seen the challenges firsthand with their own families. If you connect with our vision of helping families across the country and are energized by the impact you can make at Sunbound, we’d love to hear from you! 

Sunbound was founded in 2021 by three Harvard graduates and backed by leading venture capital firms. It’s raised millions in venture funding from funds such as Fika Ventures, Bling Capital, Max Ventures, Cambrian Ventures and Liquid2 Ventures along with leading startup and finance executives.
