Company co-founders will drive across the country this summer to thank 100 communities in person
Denver, CO – Aug. 5, 2019 – It’s Never 2 Late® (iN2L), the leading provider of person-centered digital engagement to the senior living market, today announced the kickoff of its 60/20 tour, celebrating 20 years of senior living residents enjoying iN2L technology and the 60th birthday of iN2L co-founder Jack York.
Jack, co-founder Leslie Sweeney and friends will officially launch the tour today with a birthday party during the Pioneer Network Pioneering a New Culture of Aging Conference in Louisville, KY. Later this week, the group will embark on a cross-country road trip to thank communities that are using iN2L to improve their residents’ quality of life. Since 1999, iN2L’s content-driven solutions have created a person-centered experience for older adults, helping senior living communities enhance the satisfaction of residents, families, and staff.
The tour will include stops across the U.S. and in Toronto from Aug. 8 through Nov 5. At each location, iN2L and the community have planned special experiences for the residents, from birthday cake and dance parties, to Cruising and Crooning road-trip singalongs inside iN2L’s 60/20 tour van.
“When we founded iN2L, I was working in Silicon Valley, in technology, and Leslie had the idea to donate some computers to a local senior living community. As you can imagine, this venture was met with some skepticism initially, but our vision was to tap into the enormous potential for technology to connect people – with each other, with their families, and with content and activities that have meaning,” said Jack York, iN2L’s President and Co-Founder. “But without the support of the communities, the idea of using technology to engage seniors would not have grown from being a novelty to being part of the highest standard of care for senior living residents. We’re looking forward to every single one of our stops along the 60/20 tour, so we can say thank you in person. It’s going to be an amazing way to celebrate these birthday milestones.”
“The best thing about the work we do at iN2L is the human connection,” said Lisa Taylor, iN2L’s CEO. “Our solutions help people realize a better quality of life, every day. Jack has always been passionate about seeing that impact with his own eyes and working hands-on with communities to help bring their vision for senior engagement to life. As we look to the next 20 years, we’re excited to continue along this journey with the same spirit of innovation and possibilities that the company was founded upon.”
In addition to visiting iN2L communities, the tour will include stops at these conferences:
Pioneer Network: August 4-7 – Louisville, KY (Official tour kickoff)

- ICAA: October 10-12 – Orlando, FL
