Event description

Description



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.


Schedule:

12:30pm Doors open
1:00pm Welcome & opening remarks
1:30pm Ideation activities
3:00pm Break + refreshments
3:15pm Business case activities
5:00pm Presentation of ideas
5:30pm Questions & networking

Teams entering the competition will have one month to submit their application. Details will follow by email.
