The AgeTech Collaborative™ from AARP® is leading a global mission to improve people’s lives as they age. We bring together a one-of-a-kind ecosystem of leading startups, forward-thinking investors, enlightened enterprises and creative testbeds, all working to bring ground breaking AgeTech innovations to market.

Bringing together the leading minds in AgeTech

The AgeTech Collaborative is made up of inspiring early adopters at the forefront of the $45 trillion longevity economy:

Startups

Visionary startups with solutions focused on empowering the 50+ can gain access to valuable research, find community among other like-minded entrepreneurs, and potentially connect with investors, enterprises and testbeds.
The ATC has been such a valuable community to be a part of. They have introduced us to pilot partners, investors, and other collaborative startups in the space. … The insights we get from this network of AgeTech experts is unmatched.

– Sidney Collin, De Oro Devices

Investors

Forward-thinking institutions, venture capital firms, and other funders get access to a growing portfolio of select startups, giving them the opportunity to invest early in the next wave of AgeTech pioneers.

The AARP AgeTech Collaborative team strategically curates and tactically engages all of the moving parts of the innovation ecosystem, including funders like us … We believe this is one of the most efficient ways to spark productive collaboration opportunities …
– Galina Ozgur, H/L Ventures

Enterprises

Innovative brands interested in staking their claim within the rapidly growing AgeTech market can grow the reach and value of their business by connecting and collaborating with startups, testbeds, and industry experts.

There’s always going to be an aging population, and they’re always going to have similar needs. So I think that gives us this huge opportunity, and I think the Collaborative is leading that charge, just like NAR is leading that charge in the real estate space.

– Dan Weisman, National Association of REALTORS®

Testbeds

Creative, forward-looking organizations can gain early access to innovative products and services that improve the lives of those they serve.

As a testbed, I have a resource with AARP to seek out solutions for any challenge I might have as a nonprofit retirement community. … In the end, the testbed relationship helps us to know, empirically, the strength of our programming so we can know we are making a difference.

– James Michels, Army Distaff Foundation (ADF)

Business Services

Companies with relevant products or services can grow their business with access to our startup community.

The AgeTech collaborative is a huge opportunity for non-US based AgeTech startups fighting for investors and/or industry decision makers’ attention. As an international consultancy agency we were able to leverage the growing marketplace and form collaborations and international initiatives.

– Roy Koren, Senior Market

People 50 and older in the U.S. spent $77 billion on technology in 2022 — that number is projected to grow to roughly $120 billion in 2030.*
