Nearly a third of elderly Americans live at home, and many of them require assistance to perform daily household tasks. Overwhelmingly, senior citizens prefer to live at home as long as possible. Technology has enabled vast improvements in the quality of life for many people, yet there’s been little focus on helping senior citizens live independently.
Context of Challenge
We're looking to partner with early-stage startups that have a product or technology that can be used to improve the quality of life or independence of senior citizens living at home. Startups that can integrate their innovations into existing technology are also welcome to apply. We are particularly interested in products that incorporate voice-based interfaces.
In addition to monetary compensation, successful applicants will be able to trial their products in real-world environments.
Performance in these trials may lead to partnerships in product distribution and future opportunities.
