An acceleration program for impact startups tackling the challenge of the ageing society

COVID-19 Update

In light of recent events, we wanted to confirm that this program will take place in June. Hopefully, the Coronavirus will have abated to a point where we can meet in person by then, but if not, we are putting together a contingency plan where the same content will be available online. We are excited to work with you and look forward to your applications!
