Care And HealthTech bridge
Introducing Care & HealthTech Bridge, a groundbreaking 10-month programme that brings together leading corporations and promising startups in the UK to drive innovation and transformation in the care sector. With a focus on healthy aging, this initiative aims to disrupt existing social care models and enhance the overall healthcare landscape.
The Challenge: Transforming the Care Sector for an Aging Population
The UK is experiencing an aging population, with over 11 million individuals aged 65+ in England and Wales, as per the 2021 Census*. However, living longer does not necessarily equate to living well. We believe that existing social care models are ready for disruption to address the evolving needs of the aging population and transform the wider healthcare sector.
Why Join Care & HealthTech Bridge?
Technology plays a pivotal role in improving and enhancing the aging care space. We recognize the challenges faced by larger care providers and startups in collaborating effectively to tackle industry-specific issues. Care & HealthTech Bridge provides a platform to collectively address these challenges and devise innovative solutions.
How the Programme Works
Care & HealthTech Bridge is delivered through a combination of virtual and in-person sessions once a month over a ten-month period. Themed meetups bring together industry experts, business leaders, established care companies, and startups. These collaborative sessions foster knowledge sharing and the development of solutions that promote healthy aging.
Who Should Participate?
The programme is designed to unite leaders from established care and related companies with startups in the UK, creating a collaborative ecosystem focused on healthier aging. It offers startups in the HealthTech sector an opportunity to deepen their domain expertise, expand their networks, and potentially provide solutions or proofs-of-concept for larger businesses. Established businesses, on the other hand, gain exposure to new technologies, practices, skills, and cultural shifts that accelerate innovation within their organizations.
Unlocking the Potential of Collaboration
Care & HealthTech Bridge is not just an opportunity for collaboration; it is a catalyst for redefining the care sector’s approach to healthy aging. By leveraging technology, expertise, and collective intelligence, we aim to shape a future where aging individuals receive enhanced care, well-being, and support. Together, we can drive innovation, improve quality of life, and transform the care landscape to meet the needs of an ageing population.
