AARP Health Innovation@50+ Live Pitch (April-27-2016) Finalists

It’s really too bad that AARP ended its national events. The last one was in Miami last year – it was a good one – and Atlanta must still be reminiscing about that spectacular 2013 Life@50 event – which provided a pavilion and ramp-up for its AARP TEK training program.  From 2013: “AARP TEK’s activities in Atlanta also will include youth volunteers known as “Tech Wizards” from 4-H Clubs of America and local colleges and universities, who will help boomers and seniors learn technology basics and how it can enhance their lives day-to-day."


Oh well, that was then. This is this now.  Health Innovation@50+ LivePitch at PlugandPlay is in Sunnyvale this Wednesday (27. Odds are you will not be attending – it’s sold out. Here is the list of finalists to mull over and speculate a) how this list was assembled and b) which of these offerings will be selected by the judges. Content is from the LivePitch website:
