Age Without Borders was founded by Kari Henley as a means to produce virtual summits focused on issues in aging. With feedback and time, it became clear that the intrinsic value of Age Without Borders was in the personal connections formed during the recording of the video sessions. It wasn’t the intended audience that benefited most from the product, but the professionals and individuals who directly engaged with Kari through story and discussion.
Kari realized that aging industry professionals were suffering from the very ailment that plagued the demographic they were trying to serve: isolation. By becoming siloed not only within their own specialities, but within a single project, these individuals risked losing the peer engagement that ultimately drives discussion, motivation, and solutions.
From there, Age Without Borders became a facilitator of professional connection by leveraging its original medium of choice: video. Today we help individuals and companies in the aging industry engage with one another and share their ideas through our services.
Kari is a social entrepreneur and an "aging enthusiast," with decades of experience in startups, virtual content development, international tele-seminars, blogging for the Huffington Post, facilitating for corporate and private clients and private consulting to bring out the best in thought leaders.
Kari has a Masters degree in psychology, masters coursework in Organizational leadership, and is passionate about the aging industry's global transformation.
