Newcastle

The launch event of the Aging2.0 Newcastle Chapter will tell you all about the Aging2.0 global network and kickstart our own community here in Newcastle.  We already have great strength within ageing in our city and the launch of the Chapter will allow us to build on this strength and join the Aging2.0 global community.  We're fortunate to have one of the most vibrant tech startup scenes in the UK and the Chapter will be encouraging local founders to consider the wealth of opportunities presented by the largest underserved market opportunity on the planet.  We want to make Newcastle the epicentre of disruptive innovation within ageing and completely change the tired old narrative about the ageing process and our older adults.  There's a lot more to it than you think!

Founded in New York in 2012 and run by a team in HQ in San Francisco, Aging2.0 supports innovators taking on the biggest challenges and opportunities in ageing.  Aging2.0 is international, interdisciplinary and intergenerational - focused on changing the conversation from 1.0 (focused on local, clinical, siloed approaches) to 2.0 (collaborative, lifestyle oriented, opportunity driven) - hence the name: Aging2.0.

Over the past 4 years, Aging2.0 has hosted more than 300 events around the world and relies on 50+ volunteer Chapters to build and connect our 15,000 person community in 20+ countries.
