According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the number of American seniors will grow to over 71 million by 2030. To address critical problems that the growing elder population faces, GuideWell is hosting a health and wellness accelerator program for companies and innovators focused on senior care. GuideWell’s Scale Up Accelerator: Aging in Place is seeking solutions that provide affordable, accessible health care or holistic solutions for diverse aging populations.
10 companies will be selected to participate in an exciting eight week program that consists of a two-day kickoff boot camp, followed by weekly mentoring sessions and a series of virtual workshops that focus on challenges in the health care industry (e.g. customer acquisition, regulatory compliance, etc.).
Cohort Company Criteria:
Eligible companies must meet GuideWell’s minimum “Scale Up” requirements. A Scale Up is a growing technology startup that has clear traction in its chosen marketplace. Traction can be demonstrated by one or more of the following:
• A minimum of $500,000 in revenues
• $500,000 in seed capital raised
• Verifiable (reference required) customer pilots
• Accelerating product adoption (especially for consumer-focused solutions)
The program will run from January 23rd, 2019-March 9th, 2020, culminating in a curated Investor Matchmaking Showcase in Orlando, FL., where companies have the opportunity to showcase their innovative technologies to potential investors.
If you have a health technology that can enable seniors to “Age in Place,” apply today! The deadline to apply for this amazing opportunity is December 8th, 2019.
