  1. Looking forward to participating in this upcoming summit. Life by Design NW is particularly interested in meeting retired engineers and tech-savvy folks for a survey on aging and technology with ORCATECH and OHSU in Portland, Oregon.

  2. I’ll be there. Hopefully our website will be completed ( http://www.iagewell.com )and ready to show some prospective strategic partners and social entrepreneurs! We’re currently seeking health and wellness apps to feature on our AppMap Ad Board and technology products for our STORE shelves. Hope to see you there! Peter

  3. Thank you for the wonderful opportunity to compete in a competition of business plans aimed at the needs of the Boomer generation. The real pleasure in this opportunity, for me, was the amount of thought that went into the project that helped to form and deliver my own perspective. No doubt the lessons learned will turn out to benefit all the people in coming years who we will be privileged to serve. Would love to have attended the seminar, but hope to learn from the comments of others who did. Best wishes in the success of the 2011 Silicon Valley Boomer Venture Summit.
