Get the Product (or Service) “Right”

Customer Interaction with Older Adults & Caregivers

Most of the companies we talk with are struggling, as they try to develop products and services that older adults, their adult children, and/or caregivers actually want, need, and will pay for. A common reason for this is a lack of inputs from older adults and caregivers themselves. Over several years, in a series of engagements with companies ranging from some of the largest companies in the world to raw startups, we have honed a variety of customer development approaches that can be used to help companies at different stages learn answers to different specific questions.


Reach Your Target Customers

Reach Target Audience of Customers

  We have observed that companies targeting the “Longevity Economy” have great difficulty reaching the fragmented demographic of older adults and their caregivers — and so the handful of “good” new products often remain “undiscovered”. And even if you know how to get your message in front of the potential customer, it is very hard for … Read more

Explorer Feedback

“I like attending because I get new ideas and new twists on old ideas that help me in my disorganized life.” Dr. John W-W.

“… fabulous “pop corn” style discussions.  One person often feeds thought to the next person in the room.  Lynn D.

“I attend these sessions because I always learn about a product or idea that is relevant to my life today.  I am 70 years old and in good health so some of the ideas are for future consideration.  I am also inspired by people/older adults who are still active, willing to share, and able to express themselves clearly.” Marilyn S.

Longevity Explorers: Purpose, Goals, Activities

In early 2018, several of our explorer circles decided we needed a sort of “manifesto”, that explained what we were trying to do, how we were trying to do it, and what our goals and principles were. What follows is the work of this group of explorers, and includes the inputs of many individual Longevity Explorers. … Read more
