Our Powerful Dual-Pitch Format
The Innovation@50+ format provides start-ups the opportunity to pitch to both leading
venture and angel investors and AARP consumers – at the same time. In this dual-pitch
format, the judges provide their feedback directly to the companies while they are on stage. Then, over 100 consumers in the audience will vote using handheld, wireless gear for which company they feel is most likely to succeed. At the end of the day, two winners from our 10 finalists will be announced: the Judges Overall Winner and the Consumers Favorite.
