Event description

Description



AGE-WELL and HACKING HEALTH have teamed up to launch a national ideation competition. The challenge is 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 Competition will total $75,000 in prizes.

The Competition 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 nation-wide competition will culminate in a finale to be held in Winnipeg at the AGE-WELL 2017 Annual Conference taking place on Oct. 17-19, 2017.

Don’t miss your chance to take part in a national ideation challenge!
