Ten LivePitch finalists and five Speed Pitch finalists – selected from 193 startup applicants – will individually take the stage on May 9th and present not only to the judges but also to our audience venture capital and angel investors and AARP consumers. This premier showcase features the most innovative up and coming health technology companies focused on “50-and-over” consumers. AARP LivePitch is powerful because not only does it give #startups face-to-face access to venture capitalists and angel investors, but the startups also engage with thousands of AARP consumers who will be in attendance as well.
