Jack York, Co-founder, It’s Never 2 Late (iN2L), Silicon Valley, CA
Jack York is co-founder of It’s Never 2 Late (iN2L), a company dedicated to helping older adults realize the full benefits of adaptive technology. Originally, York did not envision iN2L as a business; the impetus for what became the company was a philanthropic idea to donate computers to assisted living communities and nursing homes in Southern California.  With a 15-year background in the Silicon Valley, he saw a vast potential in fostering these connections, but also saw that conventional technology was too difficult for most residents to use in a meaningful way. As a result, in 1999, York retired as vice president of strategic sales for Vishay Intertechnology and started what has become a successful gerontechnology company, It’s Never 2 Late (iN2L).  He is a sought after national and international speaker on technology being used to create personalized experiences that engage and connect older adults to their loved ones and the world at large, specifically individuals with dementia.  As of 2019, the company has a customer base of 3,000 senior living communities spread out across all 50 states.  iN2L’s work has been recognized by the Wall Street Journal, NPR, and dozens of senior living publications.
