A dozen startups pitched at ETC’s Haven Campus on Tuesday night to close out the Aging 2.0 Baltimore accelerator.

Reciprocare founder Charlene Brown emerged with a $5,000 check. The startup is looking to launch its service, which connects agencies with caregivers, and helps low-income women find jobs.

It wasn’t Brown’s first time in Highlandtown, as Reciprocare recently completed the ETC’s Accelerate Baltimore program. With the win, Brown will also get six months of membership at the incubator. Reciprocare also recently won the regional finals of InnovateHer in D.C.

Aging 2.0’s Baltimore chapter is part of a wider network focused on highlighting innovation for senior populations. The two-month accelerator included 12 focus groups at senior communities including CHAI, Brightview and Charlestown where startups had a chance to get feedback, said Aging 2.0 Baltimore’s Jake Tunney.

Wearables startup Cyber Timez won second place recognition, while another four startups — TechStar Tutors, Silver Sedans, ReachOut and Agewell Biometrics — will get access to pilot programs at CHAI and Springwell Senior Living.
