This is it, after a half-day of Bootcamp, Pitch Day!   Our powerful “dual-pitch” format allows start-ups to pitch leading venture and angel investors as well as AARP consumers – at the same time. The pitch takes place at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, on the expo floor at Life@50+. The judges will judge.  The investors will review.  And AARP consumers vote in real-time for which company they feel is most likely to succeed with handheld, wireless voting gear. After the pitches, demos and questions from the judges, two grand prize LivePitch winners (a Judges’ Winner and AARP Consumers’ Winner) and one Speed Pitch winner will be selected at the end of the day.
