Aging 2.0

Technology for Aging: What Can We Do Better? A Primer For Entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurs passionate about making a difference are recognizing the burgeoning opportunities of the growing aging population. If you are an innovator who wants to take on some of the large or small challenges and opportunities in aging, the Aging2.0 San Francisco chapter invites you to join us for a gentle introduction to help you better understand the needs, abilities and desires of older adults and caregivers. This session is appropriate for entrepreneurs with products in development, as well as if you only have an inkling of an idea about a product you want to create.

Mary Hulme, Geriatric Care Manager, Founder of Moonstone Geriatrics, will show examples of products she has seen and tell "tales from the trenches" to help entrepreneurs understand what worked, what didn't work...and what we need. She will describe some of the challenges and opportunities she sees for entrepreneurs interested in helping families and their aging relatives. Her intent is to help you be more sensitive to the "real world" of families who may not be adept with technology -- and who may not even own a smartphone or computer!

To provide the entrepreneur's perspective, Tyler Wozny, former Director of Product Management at Lively, will talk about how Lively engaged older adults while designing their products, as well as the challenges they faced to give you an insider's experience of what it is like developing products for older clientele. An interactive audience discussion will follow. Bring your questions and your experiences to share to help other entrepreneurs. Working together we can make people's lives better as we grow up!

Real Estate Roundtable

Rent Control in San Francisco: The Current Dilemmas / The Future

We are pleased to welcome back San Francisco attorney Steven Adair MacDonald to our Real Estate Roundtable to update us on our city's complex and confounding rent and eviction control law.

Mr. MacDonald’s firm has represented both commercial and residential landlords and tenants for over 35 years. He has settled tenant suits for over one million dollars and tries cases in our courts when they cannot be mediated successfully. He will offer insight into some of the dysfunction rent control creates and make recommendations toward navigating some of the worst effects of it. Please come prepared with questions.

A native of New York, Mr. MacDonald attended Fordham University before his military service. He finished his undergraduate work and obtained his Juris Doctor degree from Golden Gate University.
