The team at Slatterys is very excited that driven by her passion for reimagining ageing, Rachel Slattery has launched the Silver Futures initiative, aimed at reshaping perceptions of later life and fostering innovation in ageing.

Rachel Slattery’s journey as a creative leader began in the realm of book publishing before she was enticed into the technology arena. Through her work at Slatterys, Rachel has fostered communities of innovation across Australia, collaborating with prominent industry associations, government entities, and leading tech companies. Notable achievements include orchestrating flagship conferences like Agile Australia (AgileAus) established in 2009 and Tech23, celebrating Australian deep-tech startups that Slatterys managed for 14 years before successfully handing over to new custodians, Cicada Innovations.
Rachel has embarked down the Silver Futures path, aimed at reshaping perceptions of later life and fostering innovation in ageing.

Through Silver Futures, she endeavours to empower individuals to approach the second half of their lives to ensure a longer, healthier, contributing life.

In September 2023, Rachel Slattery spoke to James Riley the editor of InnovationAus about how she is attempting to reframe the mainstream conversation about ageing and longevity, and the pivotal role technology and innovation will play in managing our wellness as we age. You can listen to the podcast here.

To spotlight and connect startups in the Agetech sector, Silver Futures published Australia’s Agetech Map in September 2023, gaining attention from industry publications such as Australian Ageing Agenda and Inside Ageing.

In 2024, Silver Futures continues its mission to redefine the ageing paradigm and plans to host various events, including online webinars featuring experts like Keren Etkin, TheGerontechnologist™ exploring the dynamic AgeTech landscape.
