Palo Alto

Aging2.0 is searching the world for the best aging-focused startups. Through a series of local pitch events, online voting + judging, and finale showcase featuring the most elite startups, Aging2.0 will crown an entrepreneur with the grand prize: $10,000 cash, mentorship, 1-year membership to Aging2.0 Alliance, and an international spotlight.

If Shoreline Boulevard is the South Rim of Silicon Valley’s Grand Canyon, a walk around Downtown Palo Alto should remind many of a brief trip to Disneyland ( but without the lines, and it is free). Get there early and park at the Bryant Street Parking Structure at 445 Bryant. There is always at least one more spot – no charge. Proceed east one block to University then go left and walk a few blocks to the Suitable Technologies Beam Store at 425 University. Ask the workers who are not there about remote care services delivery, check out the leaf blower(???). Then head back up University and cross the street to see the Apple Store: Steve Jobs’ personal store that he visited frequently on foot from his nearby home. Ask what they have that is popular with older people. If you want to know what to buy, ask which items are out of stock. Then head back toward, and cross over Bryant and turn left to go to the B8ta store at 516 Bryant to see 50 or so technology startups all in one small room, Both the store itself and the products are all technology startups. See all the consumer IoTs, including award winning products like the Stack Lighting system. (If someone used all of these devices and collected up all of the state information data from them, would it be possible to infer anything useful about their status?). Then head back to Avenidas to hear from some of the pioneering leaders who are forging care services networks into one of the most prominent technology frontiers of our time - the so-called digital divide.

Registration and networking begins at 5:30. We will start the program promptly at 6:30. Please be sure to give yourself enough time to get back and get settled in.

If you would like to use the complimentary code for a 100% discount on registration please email us. There will be food and refreshments at Avenidas. Really excellent food will be plentiful on University Avenue as well.

We hope to see you there.
