Seeing the negative effects of social isolation take a toll on his grandmother, Kyle Rand devoted his studies to cognitive decline in the aging population. He researched neuroprosthetics at Duke University, studying the link between functional structural changes in the brain that occur with age and the associated deficits in economic decision-making skills. This propelled Rand to create a solution to serve the older adult population, and so Rendever was born. Kyle Rand is now the Cofounder & CEO of this virtual reality platform aimed to improve the aging process by bringing the outside world to seniors. The platform is used to combat the effects of social isolation and address mental health, memory care, continued education, and physical health. Rendever has won numerous awards since its founding, including recently being ranked No. 897 on the 2021 Inc. 5000 List, and Kyle was honored for his work at Rendever by being included in the 2019 Forbes 30 Under 30 Consumer Technology list.
