AARP and LivePitch Media have announced the 10 LivePitch startup pitch and demo day finalists for the third AARP Health Innovation@50+ LivePitch, a showcase of the hottest startups in the “50 and over” health technology market.
BiiSafe Buddy is one of the finalists. It’s meant for taking care of belongings and loved ones. It enables searching for one’s lost BiiSafe Buddy and belongings attached to it, for example keys. It also enables easy and quick location sharing and alert sending among friends and family with just one press of a button.
AARP LivePitch takes place Friday, May 9, at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center. It is unique among startup pitch and demo events because it gives startups access not only to venture capitalists and angel investors but to thousands of fifty-and-over consumers. AARP Health Innovation@50 + LivePitch takes place at the bi-annual AARP Life@50+ AARP National Event & Expo, which is attended by 15,000 members and guests from across the globe.
“This year we attracted 193 excellent companies that applied to be one of our 10 finalists. In the two years we have conducted this event, we have seen more companies apply and a growing number attract investment,” said Jody Holtzman, AARP’s Senior Vice President of Thought Leadership. “Having all of these great companies to choose from, however, made for some tough decisions when it came time to determine the finalists. After careful consideration, we came away with 10 strong companies who we think are poised to make an impact in healthcare for those 50 and over – and for everyone. Not only am I looking forward to seeing each of these companies on stage, but I’m also looking forward to the reactions of our Judges and of AARP members to what these companies have to offer.”
“We are very proud to be one of the ten finalists. This proves that there is a demand for new, modern ways to make people’s every day life easier and less worrisome. We believe that design and wearability play a significant role in the modern safety devices”, says BiiSafe’s CEO Jouni Suutarinen.
