OPEN CALL FOR TECH STARTUPS

Present your new innovation and co-create with
end users from the 50+ market.

 
AITF2018 - 0035- March 2, 2018 -  by Daniel Taipe.jpg

What is a Co-Creation Session?

“Don’t just design for us...Design with us.” -- This is what older adults and seniors say, because too often, products are built, designed, and brought to market without enough input from end users.

The Co-Creation Sessions (aka Co-Design Sessions) will offer tech startups a unique opportunity to present their product and receive consumer feedback, reactions and input to help develop more effective products. Entrepreneurs will have an audience with conference attendees ages 50+ in a 75-minute breakout session during the conference.

Become a Co-Creation Session Presenter. Host a session and hear directly from the older adult consumer market as to what they need, what they want, and what they will buy.

Only 10 Co-Creation Sessions Available.
