Applications open for Ageing Innovation Accelerator
Both established businesses and new start-ups can benefit from funding and intensive support to launch new products and services of benefit to older people. Following an intensive series of workshops to outline some of the challenges and opportunities associated with an ageing society, we have put together a package of support to help get ideas to market.
Expressions of interest are now open, we will shortlist the strongest applications based on commercial potential, relevance to an ageing society and impact the Accelerator programme could have on the business. If you are shortlisted, you’ll be invited to a development day on Tuesday 19th March at St James’ Park, Newcastle.
We’ll be working with eight ambitious businesses for six months. By September 2019, we’d like to have eight new products ready for commercialisation or for significant further investment.
Deadline for applications – Friday 1st March 2019
