Frazier Allen: The New Disruptors of Old Age

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond JamesNashville, TN – The traditional wisdom among Silicon Valley’s youthful technorati is to design for what you know—texting your friends in Europe for free (WhatsApp), renting out your bedroom to make extra cash (Airbnb), finding a romantic partner without leaving your house (Tinder).
