Funding is the golden key to ensuring tech solutions are designed, developed and placed in the marketplace for older adults to adopt and integrate into their daily lives. What are the trends in older adult related technologies that investors are investing in and what are customers actually using and paying for? What are the business models that really work so innovators can bring products to market?  Hear insights from key funders in the tech + aging space on the opportunities, challenges and potential of bringing life changing tech to older adults.

CO-CREATION SESSIONS

Don’t just design for us...Design with us.

This is what older adults and seniors say -- Too often, products are built, designed, and brought to market without enough input from the end users themselves. The Co-Creation Session (aka Co-Design Session) is a special segment of the conference that will offer tech startups a glimpse into the value of consulting with, working with, and designing with older adults/seniors when creating new products for their use. It will provide a unique opportunity to hear valuable feedback from potential end users. All conference attendees will participate in a Co-Creation breakout session during the conference and get a close up look at what some of our bright tech startup founders are working on.
