Event Details

Aging2.0 is a global network of innovators working in the 50+ market. We are creating an interdisciplinary, collaborative community of people from business, research, policy, design and technology, together with older adults themselves in order to advance innovation and improve the quality of life.

Our events bring people together informally with drinks, snacks and good discussions. We generally start off with some 'big picture' perspectives, have a networking break, and then have pitches from startup companies in the space. 

This meeting will be held at:

The Hallmark, 455 North End Avenue, New York, 10282

PITCHES: (5 mins x 5 slides)

Victor Wang, Founder & CEO, GeriJoy Technologies Inc

Victor Wang is Founder and CEO of GeriJoy Technologies Inc. Considering the disparity in happiness and mental health between his two grandmothers, one who lives by herself and one who lives with family, Victor realized that social isolation is an enormous problem. At GeriJoy, Victor is committed to improving the quality of care for seniors by supporting their emotional and intellectual health. GeriJoy offers an advanced virtual companionship platform for residents of nursing and assisted living homes. GeriJoy’s patent-pending technology provides similar emotional benefits to owning a live pet, while also serving as a truly intelligent conversational partner, available 24/7 and capable of intuitively delivering a variety of intellectually stimulating content such as photos, news, or communications with family members.

Born in Taiwan, Victor grew up in Canada, programming text-based role-playing games for MS-DOS at the age of six and marveling at the graphical user interface of Windows 3.1. After developing software and websites throughout elementary and high school, Victor decided to broaden his experience, getting a BASc in Mechatronics Engineering with Distinction (Minor in Commerce) from UBC, and working stints in telemarketing, environmental research, aerospace manufacturing, particle physics, oil sands, and medical robotics, while completing his training as an officer in the Canadian Forces Primary Reserve. Victor received his MS from MIT, where he performed human-machine interface research for NASA while serving as one of the premier leaders in graduate student government.

Victor is a member of the Gerontological Society of America.


Liz Emery, Founder, Liz & Ett



While caring for her grandmothers, Liz Emery saw a great need for stylish apparel/accessories adapted to the needs of women with limited mobility.  She began designing fashionable and functional options for aging loved ones, and established Liz & Ett {Chic Adaptive Essentials} in her grandmothers’ memory.  Liz is passionate about maintaining dignity and style at all stages of life, especially in the face of health challenges.  She holds a BA in Microbiology from Miami University; an MPH in Epidemiology from Indiana University; and attended St. George's University School of Medicine for two years prior to caring for her grandmothers.  Liz launched her e-commerce site in April 2012 (www.lizandett.com) and currently resides in New York City, where she oversees production of her line in the NYC Garment Center.  

Robert Herzog, Founder and CEO, eCaring

Robert Herzog is the founder and CEO of eCaring, the only care management system that can generate a comprehensive personal health record for seniors and those with chronic conditions living at home. Robert started the company after providing extended care for his mother Grace, an experience that gave him an understanding of the problems eCaring is designed to solve.

eCaring provides the missing link in care management — actionable in-home care data — connecting the home, family and care providers. The system integrates behavioral and clinical data in real time, enabling hospitals, health care providers, payers, seniors and families to communicate in-home vital care information as it occurs; intervene early to prevent small problems in the home from becoming big ones in the hospital; substantially lower care costs while improving quality of care and reducing hospital admissions.

eCaring has two hospital trials commencing this fall, with Maimonides Hospital in Brooklyn and Beth Israel Medical Center in Manhattan.

Jarrett Bauer, Co-founder & CEO, Health Recovery Solutions


Jarrett Bauer was in his final year of the Johns Hopkins MBA Health Care Management program when his grandmother was readmitted to the hospital for heart failure. Jarrett is a firm believer in the importance of high-quality care for both outpatients and inpatients. The lack of attention that contributed to his grandmother’s illness led him to mobilize doctors, nurses, developers, and engineers to form a company that embodies this ideal.  In the US currently, of the 1.1 million heart failure patients, 25.4 percent are readmitted within 30 days. Health Recovery Solutions hopes to address that high percent of patients back within 30 days and in doing so enable its clients to avoid substantial penalties that will be levied on the top 25% of hospitals with the highest 30 day readmission rates starting in October.

Jarrett in his first year at the Johns Hopkins Business School, was elected president of the student body. As the President of the class, he strongly advocated community involvement and volunteering. After receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration in Finance from Villanova University, he began his career as a health care consultant for McBee Associates.  There he primarily worked on cash flow acceleration, revenue recovery and managing hospitals multi-million dollar accounts receivable. Jarrett has also worked for the Ministry of Health in Rwanda, evaluating the cost effectiveness of diagnostic tests.
