CodeBoxx Ventures, the branch of CodeBoxx Technologies that supports and invests in promising companies, is proud to announce that it has reached an agreement to acquire a stake in Damava, a start-up that wants to reinvent the home care services. Moreover, CodeBoxx becomes the exclusive partner for the development of its technology platform. With this agreement, CodeBoxx will make all the necessary development to deliver a digital solution that will be offered to the public as quickly as possible. It is a very challenging challenge and a very complementary partnership with the current social mission of its technology school.
“Damava is a solution that Quebec and all of Canada greatly need,” says Nicolas Genest, CEO of CodeBoxx. “When we assessed the opportunity, each member of the team had their parents in mind and feared the challenges facing the health system in the short and medium term, while Damava’s founder and CEO, Ronald Lachance. , struggling to contain his enthusiasm:
“It is with great pride that Damava partners with CodeBoxx: new technologists will have the opportunity to start their career by participating in this noble project that aims to help our seniors. A union destined to touch several generations “.
The aging population is growing in Canada and North America, while almost one in four Canadians is over 65 years of age. Most seniors aspire to stay in the comfort and safety of their home as long as possible. These seniors are our parents and grandparents and we have a duty to find the help and assistance they need to maintain their well-being and dignity. This is Damava’s noble mission. The same solution is long awaited by people without autonomy or loss of the latter.
Damava is a platform that connects beneficiaries to the specific, punctual and adapted help they need in a simple, practical, economical and secure way. Caregivers are all professionals whose skills and backgrounds have been rigorously verified. They are also continually evaluated and scored by the community as services are delivered. All caregivers are self-employed which allows them to be paid directly without the intermediaries who are currently eroding their income. Individuals registered on the platform set their own rates and since there is no intermediary, everyone wins! Clients select a service according to their own requirements, choose the caregiver of their choice from among those who have the skills to meet their needs and pay through the platform that acts as a trusted third party and follows up.
This is the beginning of a great journey between the CodeBoxx team and the Damava team that will eventually lead to more options for our seniors.
