Our Story – 2016 AARP Health Innovation@50+ LivePitch Event
The fifth annual AARP (@AARP) Health Innovation@50+ LivePitch (@livepitchmedia), a one day pitch competition for emerging startups in the healthy living space with a focus on caregiving, was held on April 27th at Plug and Play Tech Center (@PlugandPlayTC) in Sunnyvale, CA. At the pitch competition, 10 finalist companies presented their business focus on stage in a rapid 3 minute presentation to a panel of industry expert judges, most of whom were venture capitalists and angel investors focused on the aging health tech space. Only Innovation@50+ creates a dual-pitch event that also provides an audience of 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. In attendance this year were more than 400 audience members. Check out some of the highlights from the event, hear the pitches, and find out who the winners were in our special edition Storify recap.
