OPEN CALL FOR TECH STARTUPS:
Present your new innovation and co-create with
end users from the 50+ market.
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.
