About Health Innovation@50+ Live Pitch
The fifth annual AARP (@AARP) Health Innovation@50+ LivePitch (@livepitchmedia) will take place Wednesday, April 27 2016 at Plug and Play Tech Center (@PlugandPlayTC) in Sunnyvale, CA. Building on the success of the past four years of unique startup pitch events, the 2016 event will happen in technology capital of the world. This dual-pitch event is the only one of its kind, bringing together innovative startups pitching before expert judges along with their actual intended end users, consumers whose feedback is gathered and shared real-time.
Innovation@50+ is a one day pitch competition for emerging startups in the healthy living space with a focus on caregiving. At the pitch competition, 10 finalist companies will present their business focus on stage in a rapid 3 minute presentation to a panel of industry expert judges, most of whom are venture capitalists and angel investors focused on the aging health tech space.
Representing 38 million members, the power of AARP takes this pitch event up a notch. Only Innovation@50+ creates a dual-pitch event that also provides an audience of 100+ actual intended end user consumers who listen to the pitches and share feedback in real time, providing the companies absolutely invaluable market data on the spot.
“We are very proud of what Innovations@50+ has become in just 5 short years,” said Jody Holtzman, senior vice president, Enterprise Strategy & Innovation, AARP. “And we have now proven the format works. Finalists from our past events have raised over $80 million in investments and 4 companies have been acquired.”
