Hi Michael,

By 2030, it's expected that 20% of the US population will be aged 65 or older - can AI revolutionize elderly care? Read about North American and European Q3 trends in M&A, Taranis' plans after raising a $20M Series B, and opportunities between Israel and Asia. Did you know? The $34B acquisition that's got everybody talking started with the co-founder working out of a closet; can we expect more big open source sales in the future

Startup Nation and beyond

Kudos to Taranis on its $20M Series B! Taranis "plans to expand into more countries with this round of funding, including Australia."

"AI can now be found in every step of the care-pathway, starting from intelligent tracking of biometric information to early diagnosis of diseases." Read about how AI is revolutionizing elderly care.

Take a look at Pitchbook's visual summary of M&A activity in North America and Europe for Q3 2018.
