UKRI Healthy Ageing Catalyst Awards Startup Showcase

Meet UK-based start-ups who are innovating at the intersection of healthy ageing, research, emerging tech, and socioeconomic equality

The worldwide Longevity Economy is growing rapidly, but not equitably. What are researchers learning directly from older adults in diverse settings about their unmet needs? How are these insights informing new, scalable, social impact solutions for ageing populations?

Join us for a virtual showcase of UK-based startups led by researchers who are innovating at the intersection of healthy ageing, emerging tech, and socioeconomic equality.

You’ll hear pitches for early-stage solutions designed to:

You’ll also learn valuable feedback after each pitch from experts in policy, gerontology, and investing. We’re honoured to be joined by:

Come engage with these early-stage founders to help them develop their projects into self-sustaining enterprises, move their ideas forward globally, and inform new ways for your own business to prosper in the healthy ageing domain.

AGENCY is excited to produce this event in partnership with the UK Research and Innovation Healthy Ageing Challenge Catalyst Awards, and the UK Science and Innovation Network; with program support from the Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC), Zinc Social-Impact Venture Builder, and FreeWind Productions. Collectively, we aim to find ways for older people worldwide to remain active, productive, independent, and socially connected across generations for as long as possible, and to improve the ageing journey for all regardless of socioeconomic status. We look forward to having you join us in this important work!
