"My prediction is that there is going to be a ton of the brightest minds going into this space."
I was fortunate to share a panel presentation at Stanford's Longevity Center recently with Maria Thomas from Alive Ventures. Alive Ventures has just published a couple of great reports I'll link here soon. This quote and link are from one of those papers, Growing Older Better. Thanks Maria for bringing this to my attention.
Below is a quote from Greg Isenberg, CEO of Late Checkout. I like the sentiment but would be sure to add that older, ageless entreprenurs themselves have unique perspectives and valuable contributions to make regarding products and services for older adults.
“If there's any entrepreneurs listening, and you're considering the foray into building for older adults – do it. You might not look like a hero in 2022, maybe not 2023, but the tides are changing and by the end of 2023 - 2024, once we start seeing these like bigger valuation, older adult startups, and you're seeing a lot of success. My prediction is that there is going to be a ton of the brightest minds going into this space. You might feel lonely right now, but hang on, don't lose hope.” - Greg Isenberg, CEO of Late Checkout
