What is Aging2.0?

Aging2.0® is a global innovation network on a mission to accelerate innovation to improve the lives of older adults around the world. Aging2.0 connects, educates and supports innovators through community (Aging2.0 Alliance and Chapters), events, startup programs and content. Over the past 4 years, Aging2.0 has hosted more than 300 events around the world, cultivating a robust ecosystem of entrepreneurs, technologists, designers, investors, senior care providers and older adults themselves.

Aging2.0 works to bring the worlds of senior care and innovation together. Supporting technologists and entrepreneurs as they develop new products and services to fit within the needs and opportunities of the aging industry - and vice versa - working with key leaders in senior care and senior housing organizations to introduce them to cutting-edge technology and help them integrate innovation into their businesses.

Founded in 2012 by Katy Fike and Stephen Johnston, Aging2.0 is passionate about changing the conversation around aging from 1.0 (focused on challenges, exclusively medical, siloed approaches) to 2.0 (collaborative, lifestyle oriented, opportunity driven) - hence the name: Aging2.0.

Aging2.0 is run by a small, dedicated, mission-driven team out of San Francisco, California. Aging2.0’s 40+ volunteer-run Chapters span the globe with chapters across Europe, Asia, United States, Canada, Brazil and Australia.
