"These five startups fit with the mission of AARP and the goals of the Hatchery Ventures program to focus on solutions facing people 50-plus, including maintaining health and fostering social connections," said Nigel Smith, director of AARP Hatchery Ventures. "The disruptive innovations that these companies are focused on help people live healthier lives, better manage chronic health conditions, adjust behaviors for long-term resiliency, stay better connected, and live with greater purpose."

The first five AARP Hatchery Ventures program startups focus on digital health and social connections:

The AARP Hatchery Ventures program selects age-tech startups that have strong potential to create societal impact in the health, wealth and/or personal fulfillment areas for an ageless consumer and that can grow for sustained consumer impact. To be considered for inclusion each company must have a product in market, generate revenue of less than $10 million and have raised less than $10 million to-date in equity-based funding.

As part of this agreement, AARP will provide essential advisory services including access to staff with human centered design experience and to consumers for qualitative testing. The startups are invited to present to potential investors and business customers at an annual demo day and will receive access to innovation tools and resources. They will also be included in networking opportunities where their solutions will be exposed to influencers who may have an interest in their products.

The AARP Hatchery Ventures program sources start-ups from pitch events across the country and through its accelerator collaborations with MassChallenge HealthTech, MassChallenge FinTech and Upward Labs.
