There’s £100,000 prize fund up for grabs! UK Entrepreneurs and startups, this one’s for you!
There is a chance for UK entrepreneurs and tech – start-ups to win a generous prize fund in return for a business solution that will help support new technologies for the older generation.
With the application closing date only a month away (5th February 2018), start-ups have until then to submit their ideas. If given the thumbs up, the industry experts will have you pitch your ideas in March 2018.
On top of that, winners will also receive access to mentorship opportunities and valuable networking.
With a large percentage of the older population having to rely on someone to walk them through the use of new tech, it is becoming imperative that smart technology provides easy living and a chance to regain their independence.
Centrica already go above and beyond with the development of home technology and would now like to expand and investigate on how smart tech can impact older people in a positive way.
Launching their ‘Active Ageing Challenge’ will bring about the UK’s thriving startup communities and will hopefully attract the region’s most talented.
