There's a good chance someone you love has an addiction problem. And it's not what you think. Not opioids. Not wine. Not gambling. Not even final clearance, gift with purchase, or my personal favorite, sale shopping.
My name is Audra Gold, and I am the CEO and co-founder of the ground-breaking online audio streaming platform, Vurbl. I started to build websites in college, where I became obsessed with the Internet. After college, I began my career as a product manager at a Silicon-Valley-based digital media company and have been hooked on startups ever since. I took my first Head of Product job for a startup about 12 years ago and have gone on to build products for seed stage companies through Series A, B, and beyond several times over. My primary motivation for taking on one of the hardest jobs in tech is the satisfaction I get from building great products and then watching millions of users enjoy them.
Technology startups are fueling a new era of innovations to enrich the lives of aging Americans and ease their transition into their third and fourth acts and beyond.
