    The range and quality of these services have improved over past decades, but more needs to be done to assist older people to access environments, products and services enabling them to stay in their homes longer, be more social and to age well.

    By 2050, over 3.5 million Australians are expected to use aged care services each year. Ageing of the population is the largest demographic, economic and social change the western world has ever seen.

    Bigger than the world wars, bigger than any stock market crash, bigger than Ben Hur!

    By 2042 Australia will have a quarter of its population 65 years or older and nations worldwide are struggling to keep up with this change, needing innovation and new thinking to meet the needs of our older Australians.

    Ageing should be seen as an opportunity, rather than a problem, and the InnovAGE event is an unparalleled opportunity for innovation in ageing and aged care to be cultivated, encouraged and promoted in an industry that is not front of mind for most people.

    This is where you come in.

    Your support for this event will be a spark that fires the imaginations of those who can answer our challenges, providing creative solutions to the most vexing problems that may be faced daily by older Australians, their carers and family members.


    The objective of InnovAGE is to encourage entrepreneurial thinking to develop, build or launch age related solutions (services or products) to improve the lives of older Australians and their families.

    InnovAGE is being held over two weekends in a radical format that will bring entrepreneurs and developers from a broad range of sectors together to create solutions to real-life issues.

    Participants will be given access to previously untapped data relating to the sector, along with face-to-face interaction with the end users of products and services developed. Service providers will also be available to inform, co-design and test team ideas.

    At the end of the InnovAGE development process, teams will present their solutions to be judged by a high-profile jury consisting of end use customers, age services and technology experts.

    As an added incentive a range of angel investors will be present, objectively analysing the output from InnovAGE with a view to investing, mentoring and commercialisation. The top teams will be presented prizes and receive support from hosts and sponsors to take their winning entry to the next level.

    This presentation will attract members of the wider innovation and entrepreneurial community in Australia. For the entrepreneurs, the participation of customers, industry experts and providers will give them an opportunity to develop their solution in context. Creating solutions is not solely about money, more importantly its about support and access to the market.

    InnovAGE is hosted by Leading Age Services Australia, Lighthouse Business Innovation Centre, isobar, the University of Canberra and the Aged Care Industry IT Council.

    InnovAGE will be held at the INSPIRE Centre at the University of Canberra. There is a state of the art interactive meeting space with collaborative technologies and writeable Idea-Paint walls and enough break out rooms to allow groups to work on their ideas.

    InnovAGE participants will be kept engaged between the two event weekends by being continually provided with context on industry issues, updated ageing data, vignettes on customer needs, access to end users and aged care experts. Participants will also have the opportunity to participate in chat forums and online peer groups to assist with their collaboration.



    Sponsoring InnovAGE is investing in the future of all Australians. InnovAGE will encourage participants to explore new technologies and collaborate with one another, all while having fun.

    Your sponsorship and/or in-kind support will add significant value to InnovAGE. If you cant contribute financially, thats not a problem! Wed still love your support.
