The Pot of Gold in Plain Sight: The Longevity Economy is Ripe with Opportunity – Yet Mostly Ignored

Our country is aging – that is an indisputable fact. However, outside of insurance and pharma, very few industries are focused on meeting the needs of this growing (and surprisingly affluent) audience with the products and services they want and need. Equally unfortunately, hardly any VC money is going to support these initiatives. In her presentation, Jean Anne Booth, CEO and Founder of UnaliWear (makers of the Kanega Watch—the world’s only medical alert watch with fall detection) will provide a primer on the Longevity Economy and how her (fully funded) company has succeeded where so many others have either failed or declined to participate.  Along the way, she’ll also discuss generational AI and how, as a serial entrepreneur, she goes about creating new companies.
