Founded in 2016, Grittopia LLC Focuses on Unlocking the Secrets of Life-Long High Performance
There are an estimated two billion people in the world over the age of 50, accounting for approximately 20-30% of the total population and growing rapidly.
Globally, the number of people aged 80 years or over, the “oldest-old”, is growing even faster than the number of older persons overall. In 2000, there were 71 million people aged 80 or over worldwide. Since then, the number of oldest-old grew by 77 per cent to 125 million in 2015, and it's projected to increase by 61 per cent over the next 15 years, reaching nearly 202 million in 2030. Projections indicate that in 2050 the oldest-old will number 434 million globally, having more than tripled in number since 2015. (UN World Population Aging Report, 2015)
