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.
Voting is back at One Spark! Attendees will vote to determine the top ideas in each Spark* Zone. The top vote receivers in each zone will win a cash prize and will compete against each other in a real time voting competition for the crown of Top Creator of the Year. The Top Creator will receive a prize package including cash and sponsor donated services to help you take your idea to the next level.
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.
