Nclaves is an up and coming Silicon Valley startup, launched in 2011, that aims to help families monitor their health through technology with the help of professional healthcare experts. The company currently has more than customers, and hopes to expand soon. Below is an outline of the company, according to Nclaves CEO Niran Kundargi.

Key Execs: Richard Shoenhair –– Vice President Software Engineering, Richard Navarro –– Vice President Customer Experience
Date Established: 2011
Funding: Nclaves is self-funded and generates revenues via custom solution development.
Mission: To enable families to be self-empowered to monitor, manage health at home, with the help of professional healthcare experts. We take a broader view of health, beyond just weight, blood-pressure and such. For example, we include “home” in which people live as part of health equation (eg, home environment, safety).We also combine some other modules, such as health incentives, to keep family members engaged in managing their health. For example, a grandma can earn “incentive points” by keeping her health milestones and use those incentive points towards gift to her grandson.(some of these modules are not yet in the product, but that is the roadmap we have)
What’s Next: Next step is to continue to improve usability based on the user feedback. We will also embark on additional marketing channels to expand customer base. Providing a mobile interface is in the pipeline too, although many seniors are more interested in ease-of-use on desktop itself rather than smart-phones because of latter’s restricted screen size.
