WORLD POPULATIONS ARE LIVING LONGER.

Countries are grappling with becoming nations of elders. Institutions are bracing for seismic demographic shifts in social structures that impact health, wealth, and wellbeing. Businesses in every sector are struggling to deliver quality, affordable, elder services at scale. Families are navigating heartbreaking long-term caregiving scenarios for their aging loved ones. Elders are simply seeking peace of mind, connection, and vitality amidst declining options. What can be done?

WE BELIEVE the worldwide longevity crisis is a crucible for galvanizing elder-centric innovation as people everywhere reimagine how best to grow old. 

WE’RE BUILDING a global community of innovators to catalyze ideas and grow successful eldertech companies.

OUR GOAL is to help commercialize scalable solutions that benefit millions of elders worldwide as well as the families, communities, professionals, and institutions who collaborate on their care.

STIMULATING INNOVATION

OUR FRAMEWORK for activating innovation is to co-locate eldertech startups, scale-ups, experts, and enterprises in global CIC hubs; to amplify their work via events and strategic collisions with an international membership community; and to actively connect companies to each other, and to the resources they need, so they can design, test, and launch meaningful elder-centric solutions to market

  • CIC International ElderTech Coworking Hubs: co-located workspaces for eldertech startups, scale-ups, and sponsors, with visiting scholars, tech/designers, advocates, and experts
  • Strategic Ecosystem Connections: active introductions to collaborators, partners, payors, policy makers, elder focus groups, beta testers, aging-focused foundations and councils, cross-sector organizations, NGOs, researchers, thought leaders and investors
  • Vibrant Programs on Aging: events for members and the public, product showcases, expert deep dives, emerging trends symposia, hackathons, reverse-pitches, industry networking, best practice platforms, and public awareness campaigns
  • Corporate Innovation Consulting: customized buildouts of internal innovation strategies, products, services, and labs
