Faculty Profile:

Kyle RandCofounder/CEORendever
Kyle Rand is the cofounder and CEO of Rendever, a virtual reality (VR) platform helping seniors combat social isolation through the power of shared experiences. Having always felt a close kinship to seniors, Kyle grew up volunteering at a senior living community and later went on to study cognitive decline in the aging population at Duke University. After a personal experience moving his own grandmother into a senior living community, Kyle experienced first-hand the effects social isolation has on seniors and cofounded Rendever as a result. Under Kyle's leadership, Rendever is changing the lives of thousands of seniors in more than 400 senior living communities worldwide. Most recently, Kyle oversaw Rendever's collaboration with UC Santa Barbara to start a multi-site clinical trial to observe the positive impact VR has on seniors.
