Some of the most promising products were displayed at the recent Israel Aging 2.0 startup contest during the Conference for Technologies for Aging Well at Bar-Ilan University.

“We see the entry of more and more high-quality Israeli ventures in this field, and more interest from the investor community,” says Dov Sugarman, the Israel representative for Aging 2.0, a global platform to accelerate innovation to improve the quality of life of the aging population.




The competition was part of Aging 2.0’s worldwide startup search. Winners of 40 local events are featured on the Aging 2.0 website from July 19 to August 18 for popular voting and expert judges’ review. A chosen few will vie for prizes and mentoring at a San Francisco event in October.
