Tap into the growing intersection between business and meaningful solutions for the expanding older market.
There is a significant and expanding market aiming to meet the needs of our growing older population. As baby boomers start to retire, these consumers are no longer satisfied with products and services ‘for old people’.
Join some of Australia’s most respected thought leaders in the space, as we discuss and debate the best ways to find and commercialise the significant business opportunities. Meet like-minded businesses and individuals, find new opportunities for collaboration and be inspired by ways to overcome tricky barriers.
And hear how other start-ups and innovative Australian businesses are tapping into consumer demand for engagement and purpose – to develop both traditional and technology-based solutions.
Help us unpack Aging2.0's Grand Challenge: Engagement & Purpose and leave excited with new ideas to disrupt the status quo.
Please join us for an informal evening, commencing with our keynote address by Mike Rungie, ‘New narrative start-ups in an old narrative world’, and followed by a lively panel discussion focusing on “What’s holding back innovation in ageing” and 3 short pitches from start-ups who have achieved traction by using out of the box thinking.
You are then invited to make connections and share your thoughts over drinks and nibbles.
Anyone with a product, a service or an idea that could resonate with the over 60’s market!
If you’re a start-up, involved in health tech or ageing tech, a large or small established business, an innovator or an interested citizen – you’re invited! Join us as we look to build and grow opportunities in this exciting new market.

Passionate about lots of things, particularly ideas which makes the world a better place.
I believe city life is rich and rewarding when people are connected, where imagination and experimentation are welcome, where value is created, not just acquired and where no-one is left behind.
Building a highly skilled team, I have supported and delivered creative spaces for artists, affordable work space for entrepreneurs, technology to make our city accessible and welcoming, events and spaces that bring communities together and the world to Sydney. This has only been possible through partnerships with government, peak business and community organisations, communities and individuals. We are all in this together.
I am interested in how imagination and technology can create a rich, equitable city life.
