AgeTech Collaborative™ Fall Inspiration Roundup

By Mark Ogilbee posted 12-01-2022 07:00 AM


We here at the AgeTech Collaborative™ like to stay abreast of developments and trends in all things AgeTech – including topics that could be called “AgeTech-adjacent” — so we attend a lot of conferences, read a lot of books, listen to a lot of podcasts and generally consume a lot of media.  

To help inspire your own quest for AgeTech info, here’s a roundup of what’s been on our must-read, must-listen, must-watch lists as fall turns into winter.




  • How I Built This with Guy Raz —  Host Guy Raz interviews world-class entrepreneurs, who share their own stories of failure and success, as well as their insights into creativity, leadership and more. 

  • Masters of Scale — Featuring interviews with noted guests, this podcast hosted by LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman is on a mission to “democratize entrepreneurship” by delivering insights on how to scale a startup. 


Apps + Tech 

  • With her recipes, entertaining life tips and lively spirit, @brunchwithbabs became an overnight Instagram sensation as “the internet mom / grandma you didn’t know you needed.”

  • Also on Instagram, the content featured @retirementhouse by a group of actors who are 50-plus smashes stereotypes about aging in a way that’s joyful, surprising — and sometimes mildly NSFW.

  • On another note, we’re excited about this recent policy change at the FDA that will allow people to purchase over-the-counter hearing aids without needing a medical exam or prescription. 


Conferences + Events 

Check out these conferences that we’ve been following and attending in recent months: 

  • HLTH 2022 (Las Vegas, Nov. 13–16) — At this conference featuring over 100 sessions with leaders from across the health ecosystem, the AgeTech Collaborative™ hosted a “Jeopardy” game show-style luncheon with questions and answers centered on the longevity economy. 

  • HITLAB Innovators Summit 2022 (Nov. 29–Dec. 2, New York City) — This conference features keynote addresses and panel discussions focusing on the future of technology adoption in healthcare. 

  • What’s Next Longevity Innovation Summit (Dec. 7, 8 and 13, Washington, D.C.) — This hybrid in-person and online event aims to help entrepreneurs, investors and other leaders in the longevity ecosystem navigate the regulatory environment and make connections across the private and public sectors.
