About Us

GetSetUp is on a mission to help the third of the world’s population who are over 55 to learn new skills, connect with others and unlock new life experiences. Older adults have incredible knowledge to share and new mountains (literally and figuratively) to climb, but until now they haven’t had their own place to pursue their passions and continue creating, growing, and giving back.

Be Empowering

Every day we create change to enable active agers to live their best lives.

Be Curious

We are lifelong learners with a constant hunger for knowledge, and genuine interest in learning from each other.

Be Hospitable

A welcoming community where everyone feels supported to work and grow in a non-judgemental environment.

Be Bold

We embrace taking risks and making mistakes, and relish the uncertainty of being an explorer.

GetSetUp is the largest and fastest growing online community of older adults who want to learn, connect with others and unlock new life experiences. Since our founding we have grown to more than 4.6 million users around the world. The platform offers live classes taught by peers who are experts in their field, social hours hosted by community members, and special events with speakers who directly address areas of interest to older adults. Classes are taught by older adults on a highly interactive, custom-built video platform where older adults can connect during and in between classes. On our site classes are offered in English, Spanish, Hindi and Mandarin. We have core teams in the U.S., Australia, India, and UK with more sites coming soon.
