Join the conversation #agewellHH

AGE-WELL and HACKING HEALTH have teamed up to launch a national ideathon focused on identifying and investing in great new ideas (technologies and services) to support healthy aging. The first national competition of its kind, prizes awarded at the AGE-WELL – HACKING HEALTH National Ideathon will total $75,000 in cash and in-kind services.

The AGE-WELL – HACKING HEALTH National Ideathon will be conducted over a series of ideathons. An ideathon is a collaborative event where diverse stakeholders harness their collective knowledge and creativity to brainstorm innovative solutions to pressing challenges. Participants use user-centric design techniques and methodologies (such as ideation, journey mapping, and prototyping), and the creation of an initial business case, to propose a novel solution.

Local ideathons will take place in four cities: Toronto, Montreal, Halifax and Vancouver. The national ideathon will culminate in a finale to be held in Winnipeg at the AGE-WELL 2017 Annual Conference taking place on Oct. 17-19, 2017.

Seven great new technologies and services to support healthy aging have been chosen for the October finale. Please click here for information on the finalists.
