AGE-WELL - Hacking Health National Ideathon: Vancouver
Fri, 26 May 2017, 12:30 PM – 7:00 PM PDT
AGE-WELL and HACKING HEALTH have teamed up to launch a National Ideation Competition, an innovative challenge focused on identifying and investing in great new ideas to support healthy aging. It consists of a series of four ideathons in four major Canadian cites: Vancouver, Toronto, Montréal, and Halifax. It will culminate at the 2017 AGE-WELL annual conference in Winnipeg where 75K in prizes will be awarded to the national winner.
An ideathon is a collaborative, workshop-like 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.
12:30pm Doors open
