Don’t miss out!

By Steve Moran

I think I have attended all but the first of the AgeTech conferences. Each year they have gotten bigger and better. This year’s event takes place next week in San Francisco . . . and everyone loves visiting San Francisco.

5 Reasons

I asked the Aging2.0 AgeTech Leadership team to give me the 5 best reasons to attend. Here they are:

  1. Keynote speeches from top executives catering to the senior market:

    • Cynthia Breazeal, founder of the world’s first family robot, Jibo

    • Michael Weiner, the Chief Medical Information Officer at IBM

    • Kenneth Shinozuka, the teenage founder of Safe Wander, a wander-prevention solution

    • Lanning Tian, Vice Secretary General of China Association of Social Welfare.

  1. A taste of Silicon Valley: Unique concurring events and opportunities for out-of-town and local attendees alike

    • SF Bay Dinner Cruise with guest speaker Jeremy Bloom, premier athlete and founder of the inspirational program, Wish of a Lifetime, which fulfills long-held dreams for the oldest generation.

    • Innovation Tours of corporate campuses including Google SF, Yahoo, Lyft, One Medical Group, Frog, Amazon, and many others.

  1. Unparalleled educational opportunities including 30+ education sessions covering topics such as “Bridging the Digital Divide Among Seniors,” “Design Takes Center Stage,” “Reinventing Monitoring & Caregiving with Artificial Intelligence,” “Relieving Anxiety & Depression through 3D Immersion” and “Legal and Liability Issues for Pilot Projects” from a variety of experts drawn from Aging2.0 Alliance, Academy and Leaders Circle companies and others in the Aging2.0 network.

  1. “You knew them when.” See start-ups in action . . .

    • The 3rd annual Pitch for Pilots (P4P), which will enable a batch of market-ready companies to pitch in front of hundreds of senior care providers to secure partners to pilot their technologies in a range of care settings.

    • Global Startup Showcase of up-and-coming companies that were selected as part of the recent #30in30in30 global pitch event series. Startups from around the world will introduce their innovative products and services.

  1. Hear from the most important audience of all, the Seniors with a closing panel of 70+ older adults as they discuss the role of tech in their lives and their thoughts about the next wave of innovation in aging.

I am looking forward to being there and hope we get a chance to chat. Also I would love to have you join me and Katie Roper for our presentation “Mapping the Caregiver Journey.”
