Aging 2.0 Toronto Global Startup Search

Fri, Apr 7, 2017, 8:30 AM (EDT)



The Aging2.0 GSS is an annual program designed to searching the world for the best aging-focused startups. The competition kicks off with a series of pitch events in Chapter cities around the world - hundreds of startups apply to compete and local teams carefully select participants and judges for each event. The winning startup from each local pitch event moves forward to an online voting round, where the general public and panel of expert judges evaluate and contribute to the selection of finalists. The finale pitch event will take place during the Aging2.0 OPTIMIZE Conference in San Francisco November 14-15, 2017. This program is supported by Google for Entrepreneurs.
