Nearly 10,000 Americans turn 65 every day, fueling the so-called “Silver Tsunami”. No single sector can address the diverse set of challenges resulting from this demographic trend. So we’re joining forces with a cross-sector group of thought leaders to innovate together– with the goal of giving adults the freedom to age and stay connected to the world around them.
Re-Imagining Living Environments

Who We Are
The AgingWell Hub, co-founded by The Global Social Enterprise Initiative at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business and Philips, NA, is a cross-sector collaborative. We’re a diverse group of organizations committed making a difference for older Americans. It’s about research, partnerships, open innovation and shared frameworks which come together to enhance the delivery of products and services to the aging population and their family caregivers.
What We Do
The next wave of innovation for aging populations will be about ecosystems – of data, partners and people – that together address significant societal problems and unmet needs.
By embracing open innovation, we learn from each other’s successes and challenges, expertise, insights and points of view. We make the process less about us and more about society, and we efficiently and collaboratively deliver meaningful solutions.
Shape a unique center designed to work with businesses, nonprofits, academia, and public agencies to accelerate solutions to the pressure-point challenges related to aging.
