North East businesses and start-ups developing innovative solutions in the ageing sector can now apply to take part in our full Ageing Innovation Accelerator.
Following an intensive series of workshops to outline some of the challenges and opportunities associated with an ageing society, the accelerator provides a package of support to help budding innovators bring their ideas to market. This includes up to £12,500 of investment from Northstar Ventures and 6 months office space on Newcastle Helix, courtesy of Newcastle City Council.
Innovation Super Network will be working with eight ambitious businesses for six months and by September, they'd like to have eight new products ready for commercialisation or significant further investment.
The Accelerator is open to any business based in the North East or planning to start up in the region.
