Ah, getting older. It's not always fun, but at least it's one of those inevitable things we can count on in life. Fortunately, another thing we can count on is the investing prowess of the PE industry, which has had its eye on the aging population for some time. Since the beginning of 2003, in fact, PE investors have backed 138 senior-related companies based in the U.S. or Canada, according to the PitchBook Platform. Predictably, many of those companies operate in the healthcare industry, but not all. South Shore Venture Enterprises (detailed below) specializes in direct marketing campaigns aimed at senior citizens. Also making the list was Life After 50, an online magazine and website community developed exclusively for seasoned citizens.
