Did you know that: 10,000 people are turning 65 in the United States every single day? And in the US, people over 50 generate $8.3 trillion annually in economic activity? And by 2050, it is projected that people over 50 will spend 61 cents of every dollar. So the older adult population is too big to ignore.

This panel will address the size of the older adult and caregiving markets, how to get to know these customers, themes of interest to Longevity investors, and the deep support the DC area offers startups in the category.
