Centrica is launching the Active Ageing global challenge

Centrica is launching their global Active Ageing challenge. By seeing a huge opportunity to collaborate with the start-up community they would like to drive innovation and create new services and products for our customers.

The Active Ageing challenge is based on the belief that smart technology has the ability to solve one of society’s biggest challenges, which is to stay active and independent as we age. Age shouldn’t be a barrier to adopting technology, by joining the Active Ageing challenge you can explore how smart technology can enrich the lives of people as they age. 

In total, Centrica has received over 120 applications from start-ups based in the UK, USA, across Europe, Israel, India and Australia. They are inviting the ten most promising start-ups to the demo day at Rocketspace in London on Thursday 15th March to pitch to a panel of industry experts for a share of a £100,000 prize fund.

As well as the potential to win a share of the prize fund, winners  will also have the opportunity to gain access to:

  •      Valuable network opportunities and exposure
  •      Industry recognition and idea validation
  •      The opportunity to build long term partnerships with Centrica

Each start-up will have 5 minutes to pitch their innovation followed by 10 minutes Q&A from the judges and guests. There will also be plenty of time throughout the day to network, make new connections and hopefully identify new collaborations!

Key Details:

  •      Date: 15 March 2018
  •      Time: 09:00 – 16:00
  •      Venue: Rocketspace, London (40 Islington High St, London N1 8EQ – nearest tube Angle Station)
