Health & Ageing Accelerator

Healthy ageing is about "optimizing opportunities for good health, so that older people can take an active part in society and enjoy an independent and high quality of life". The world is facing a situation without precedent: We soon will have more older people than children and more people at extreme old age than ever before.

As both the proportion of older people and the length of life increase throughout the world, key questions arise. Will population aging be accompanied by a longer period of good health, a sustained sense of well­being, and extended periods of social engagement and productivity, or will it be associated with more illness, disability, and dependency? How will aging affect health care and social costs? Are these futures inevitable, or can we act to establish a physical and social infrastructure that might foster better health and well-being in older age?

Entrepreneurs who strive for social impact can roll up their sleeves and start working. We are preparing a new international accelerator program solely focused on the challenges of Health & Ageing. Together with outstanding strategic partners, investors, business and industry experts we are working towards a launch in April 2017.

Are you interested to work with us on this exciting new accelerator program? Please reach out to us for more details about our road map for the upcoming months.
