AustinUP is a community alliance committed to making Central Texas a place where older adults live full, engaged lives.
What we believe:
- We need to retire the word retired.
- As long as our hearts are beating, we must engage in the world around us.
- Older adults are an invaluable community resource, waiting to be tapped.
Our vision is to create a region that responds to aging as a dynamic rather than a stagnant force. We are all aging, all the time. And we want to make Central Texas a place that supports each of us, at every age.
Because our community is changing – and it’s not just how you think.

The 2017 ATX Aging & Innovation Summit, being held at Dell Medical School on May 4, will include entrepreneurs, academics, practitioners and investors who will discuss the newest trends and spotlight some of the most significant innovations in the aging/tech space; explore current and future demand for services and technology in this growing and underserved market; provide an opportunity for entrepreneurs, businesses and investors to engage; and create a dynamic forum for entrepreneurs to “pitch” their businesses.
