"It was a truly valuable and rewarding experience attending the Aging2.0 OPTIMIZE conference, and in particular the Start-up Bootcamp in San Francisco. Aside from hearing the excellent array of on-stage speakers, advising and providing insight on all aspects of the aging sector and the opportunities therein, the ability to network and share information and experiences with other start-ups and founders working in aging innovation was a rare treat. Being the founder of a business providing a social solution for older adults, I was able to share real relateable knowledge and information with other founders I met who are addressing the same demographic with similar needs via a variety of products and services. The common ground of aging made it so much more useful than other start-up conferences I have attended. The openness and enthusiasm with which people were interacting and learning from each other was a real highlight - everything from investment opportunities, customer insights and analytics, business development, potential collaborations - I came away bouyant with a sense of new possibilities and opportunities, and hopefully through sharing my own learnings, helped others benefit in a similar vein.
