By 2020, people over age 65 will outnumber children under age 5. Humanity faces an urgent question on an unprecedented scale: How do we care for an aging population who can’t work, and harness the contributions of those who can? How do we use technology and creative delivery models to provide care at scale?
This meetup will focus on the unique challenges that are facing this population. There will be guest speakers from SilverTech companies (startups for the senior population) as well as from community organizations sharing their perspective on the future.
The goal of this group is to bring together a diverse group of people to learn about the challenges, think about and question them, then create ideas and hopefully businesses to tackle these.
There are too many smart people in Chicago, for only a handful of aging/senior care businesses. We want to change that with stimulating discussion and developing a deeper understanding of the challenges and opportunities.
