Exploring Silvertech: Innovations For Seniors And Caregivers

Mon, Aug 21, 2017, 9:30 AM (CDT)


To successfully innovate in the silvertech domain, entrepreneurs must acknowledge the complex needs and living environments of seniors and their health care providers. When we talk about aging the tendency is to focus on diminishing capacity, but to create and deliver successful products in this space innovators need to explore and attempt to understand the rich and engaging world of senior life that includes creativity, relationships, and lived experience. 

The Exploring Silvertech conference presenters are innovators from across the spectrum.  Some have dedicated their careers to senior care and senior health, others found their passions more recently.  They will speak on topics ranging from innovative senior living settings to the challenges of managing care across providers to supporting the daily life of seniors in their homes. Uniting all of these speakers is a commitment to enhancing the lives of older adults and supporting the communities that surround them. 

Speakers will give individual presentations which will culminate in a panel discussion. Lunch is included in the ticket price.   

Exploring Silvertech is the kickoff event of the Aging2.0 Local: Madison Chapter.  We will introduce what the chapter is about and how conference attendees and others can be involved.  This is an exciting organization offering access to and participation with a global community of innovators in the aging and senior care space.  

Exploring Silvertech is part of Madison's Forward Festival - Wisconsin’s largest technology and entrepreneurship festival.
