About Us

Collective Commitments became a 501(c)(3) in 2016. We are a social enterprise club intent on finding public service projects that benefit Mainers and are ones where our talents can make a difference.

We became a local chapter for Aging 2.0 in 2018. Our goal is to bring leading edge technology, innovations and knowledge to support a variety of Maine based Aging organizations. We view Aging as an opportunity to change the world.

As a Local Chapter, we function as an extension of the Aging2.0 HQ Global team.

Our Chapter Goals

1. Build local community /ecosystems of innovation.

We will bring together innovators in the aging and senior care space, breaking down industry silos and educating/encouraging businesses to work in the aging innovation industry.This goal will primarily be achieved by leading and supporting collaborative networking events, and showcasing leading-edge technologies in reports and also in our “demonstration lab”.

2. Contribute to help Maine become a leading edge Aging in Place state.

We will: 1) demonstrate how technology can be used to enhance quality of life of all of it’s citizens and, 2) create educational programs focused on meeting future employment opportunities that accompany its aging population.

3. Share innovation best practices and insights with other Maine organizations that operate in the Aging space.

We will collect data and insights from other Aging2.0 Chapter members and Aging 2.0 global events and Alliance members. This information will be shared at our own local events.
