The Aging2.0 Global Startup Search is an annual program designed for searching the world for the best aging-focused startups. The competition kicks off with a series of pitch events in Chapter cities around the world - hundreds of startups apply to compete and local teams carefully select participants and judges for each event. The winning startup from each local pitch event moves forward to an online voting round, where the general public and a panel of expert judges evaluate and contribute to the selection of finalists. The finalists will pitch at the Aging2.0 OPTIMIZE Conference in San Francisco November 14-15, 2017. This program is supported by Google for Entrepreneurs.
What are the Goals?
- Identify and learn about new startups focused on seniors around the world
- Educate the community about Aging2.0 and innovations related to aging
- Continue to expand and deepen the global community
