Startups After 50

Startups After 50


AustinUP is partnering with Aging 2.0 to bring entrepreneur Jeff Tidwell, co-author of Next For Me: A Guide to Startups for Dreamers, to Austin. His presentation, titled “Startups After 50,” will offer a practical and inspiring discussion for people exploring entrepreneurial and startup opportunities in the next chapter of their careers.

Jeff’s presentation is part of Aging 2.0’s Global Innovation Showcase (GIS) and Aging Innovation Expo. Attendees will listen as showcase entrepreneurs “pitch” their new products or services for consumers age 50+ and vote for their favorite ideas. The expo will allow attendees to learn more about the innovations. Jeff will speak at 1:15 p.m. and have books for purchase afterward.
