En español | AARP Innovation Labs is heading to Las Vegas for a series of tech conferences, hosting competitions for innovators looking to help empower people to choose how they live as they age. Next month, we’ll host a startup pitch event during the annual HLTH conference for tech entrepreneurs focused on developing technology to help improve older adults’ cognitive abilities. Finalists can win up to $10,000 for their companies and may also be invited to our AgeTech Collaborative program, where they’ll receive mentorship and guidance for connecting with an older audience.

And in January, we’ll be hosting a pitch competition around what fun looks like for people age 50-plus at the annual Consumer Electronics Show. We’re still accepting entries and will cover two attendee passes for those chosen to pitch at the AgeTech After Dark Open Mic Challenge. Finalists may also be invited to our AgeTech Collaborative program to help support their ventures.

AARP Innovation Labs regularly hosts pitch competitions and contests for startups focused on giving people more options and independence as they age. Learn more about our HLTH 2022 and CES 2023 competitions, and read about how AARP Innovation Labs is supporting startups and technology aimed at helping older adults.
