Blazing the trail to an equitable and sustainable future for all lgbtq+ elders.

SAGEVenture is a hub of entrepreneurship and innovation.

It’s the social enterprise division of SAGE, the world’s largest and oldest organization dedicated to improving the lives of LGBTQ+ elders. We are creating new, innovative programs, products, and offerings with forward-looking sustainable funding models.



SAGEVenture is built by loving, caring and daring activists.

SAGEVenture is a laboratory of change and innovation by SAGE, the world’s largest organization dedicated to advocacy, services and innovations for LGBTQ+ elders. Its programs help fund SAGE’s services, which allow LGBTQ+ elders to thrive. SAGEVenture is inspired by the daring, pioneering spirit of LGBTQ+ elders who ventured to question the status quo and fight for the visibility and rights we all receive today.

Who we are

We believe in doing well by doing good.

SAGEVenture provides expertise in LGBTQ+ aging, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), and advocating for historically marginalized groups. Programs under SAGEVenture are social enterprises that both contribute to SAGE’s mission and operate as fee-for-service businesses. SAGEVenture is helmed by Executive Director Michele Giordano
