The HealthSpark* Zone is being sponsored by Guidewell Innovation. Guidewell Innovation has launched a Health+Accel program focused on Aging Well.
Aging Well is the idea that healthy living and increased longevity can be achieved without sacrificing independence or autonomy. Aging Well solutions allow individuals to age with dignity on their own terms and remain in the homes and communities of their choice for as long as possible. Solutions should empower individuals to take control of their health on a personal level as well as within their homes and communities through both B2B and consumer-facing products, programs and services that focus on maintaining a sense of connectedness, productivity and safety.
Key Solution Areas:
Wellness & Vitality
Intelligent Homes & Communities
Spirituality & Mindfulness
Individual Health Management
Preference for the HealthSpark* Zone will be given to teams whose products or solutions focus on Aging Well. Non Aging Well solutions will be considered and included as space permits. Alternatively, you are invited to apply using the general application for one of the other "Spark*" Zones.
A Spark Tank presentation competition will be conducted for the HealthSpark* Zone. The winner will be presented $5,000 and will compete in the Spark Tank Championship for an additional $20,000.
All Spark Tank winners will be required to sign a non-recourse convertible note (SAFE) which converts to equity at a discount at the venture's next funding round. Details of this note will be explained prior to the event so everyone understands the concept. We are not asking for 5% of your company, just the chance to be in the next funding round given the exposure participating in One Spark and a Spark Tank provides each team.
