Christchurch start-up helping seniors get tech savvy

From Afternoons, 1:52 pm on 26 February 2021

A start up created by a trio of University of Canterbury graduates has proved popular among older people.

GranSkills offers one-on-one tech tutoring to help seniors connect online with family as well as navigate their way around the internet.

Phoebe McCaughan is of the three who started the business and talks to Jesse about spotting a gap in the market for personalised tutorials for the elderly.
