The 2013 AgeTech West Conference and Technology Expo will be held November 14-15, 2013 at the San Jose Marriot, San Jose, CA.
This year’s conference will have a 1.5-day format starting Thursday afternoon and will feature venues and content to take advantage of the Silicon Valley location.
Plan to stay the weekend and visit destinations such as San Francisco, Half Moon Bay, Santa Cruz, Napa Valley or Yosemite National Park!
The opening session features a keynote by ‘rock star’ Eric Dishman, Intel Fellow and general manager of health and life sciences group at Intel Corporation, entitled “Inventing the End of Long Term Care: The Move to Personal Health.”
The Pitch-for-Pilots competition comes next, where start-up companies selected in partnership with Aging 2.0 will pitch their technology solution to the audience with the goal of attracting pilot partners.
After the pitches, attendees will have the opportunity to visit with the contestants at the exhibit tables, cast votes for their favorites and indicate their interest in piloting specific solutions and even hosting an “Entrepreneur in Residence” at their senior living community. Cash awards will be given for the crowd favorite and the startup with the most interested pilot partners.
The conference continues on Friday, November 15th from 8:15 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and features two stimulating general sessions, three sets of breakout sessions, and a networking lunch.
