Startups who are invited into one of our 8-week cohorts can expect hands-on mentorship and community with like-minded founders with products serving older consumers. Each startup in the program is assigned a dedicated advisor who works with them to tackle the specific challenges they are facing.
Surrounded by a team with years of experience building and creating solutions for the 50+ demographic, startups gain rapid insight into the market and can tap into a breadth of resources like consumer insight tools, subject matter expertise, unique cohort-only events, business case development and more – all customized to meet your startup’s goals and help you succeed.
Our 8-week accelerator program helps early-stage AgeTech startups better understand the 50+ consumer and position their solution to tap into the $8.3 trillion longevity economy.
If you are a startup exploring opportunities in the longevity space, this is the place to be! AARP Innovation Labs is the intersection of technology and the longevity economy. You’ll be able to tap into decades of research and insights into consumers 50+ and the experts who live and breathe this work everyday.
On top of that, we founded our program with the goal to be hands-on. We aren’t just providing mentors, but dedicated support that acts as an extension of your team through the duration of the cohort. Our team dives in to understand your business, pain points, and goals so that we can best support your individual business needs, whether that is testing business models, collecting consumer feedback on your next release, or understanding what messaging resonates with your audience.
