The aging process creates physical, mental and social challenges. For those maintaining their independence in their golden years – or aging in place – the right medical technology can improve quality of life, lower costs, limit and prevent issues and ensure they get the most out their twilight years.
That’s why we’re hosting this Innovation Jam. It’s an open call for solutions to common issues older adults face.
Prolong physical, mental and financial freedom, ensuring confidence and sense of purpose.
Reduce environmental risks as mobility and dexterity decrease.
Preventive care, detection and monitoring to keep treatable health issues in check.
Sustaining relationships with friends and family to help maintain mental health and sense of inclusion.
WE SAVED A SPOT FOR YOU!
Who do we need? In a word: YOU. Your knowledge, your brainpower, your skills.
If you’re thinking “Is this for me?” … it is. This Jam is inclusive. It’s not a code-focused hackathon or a stuffy panel. We’re looking for out-of-the box ideators and free-thinkers, business strategists, aspiring leaders, students, creatives … you name it.
Aging is inevitable, after all. So whether it’s for you or for your grandparents, we want to see your passion for problem-solving translated into big results for older adults (and some cash for your pockets).
MAKE GRANDMA PROUD
We’re looking for solutions that could roll out in the not-so-distant future, which means your grandparents could see the benefits of our work. It’s a chance to give back to the Greatest Generation – with solutions that could one day work for you. If that’s not enough motivation, there’s a whole lot of other ways our participants will benefit from this Innovation Jam. You’ll have a chance to network, learn and, most importantly, have a great time collaborating on ideas that can help real people in the near and distant future – maybe even yourself.
And, yes: there’s cash prizes. $10,000 in fact, as selected by our expert judges.
Ideas that go places, making the world more liveable for older adults.
Connect within your industry and across others.
Expert emerging tech mentorship, speakers, and presentations.
Relax and network with live virtual events.
Money talks. $10,000 in total prizes
1st Place - $5,000
2nd Place - $2,500
3rd Place - $1,000
Doing good done right. Prizes, games, and a chance to give back – what’s not to love?
