Silver Economy

The demographic shift in Peru and around the world, characterized by a decline in birth rates and an increase in the number of older adults, is due to advances in medicine and new technologies that offer treatments for previously incurable diseases. This phenomenon has given rise to the Silver Economy, a part of the global economy that focuses on two key components: creating public policies and private spaces that empower older adults, extending their productivity, as they are becoming one of the largest productive forces; and identifying their needs and demands, which opens up opportunities for the creation of new businesses and ventures. Although aging is often seen as a burden, for the Silver Economy and Adulto Feliz, it represents an opportunity to promote inclusion, entrepreneurship, and innovation.
