About this Program
Since Baby Boomers are opting to stay within the comforts of their home as they age, an entire industry of home health-care has exploded along with demand to make assisted-living communities more upscale. The entire industry is adopting a “value care” mindset.
Upward is uniquely positioned in the Aged Care industry to incubate innovations that facilitate this societal shift through reputable partners in the nursing home, assisted-living and home health-care industries.
Are you ready for real growth?
Upward Labs is a CT based Venture Fund that developed the ideal ecosystem to fast-track AgeTech and PropTech startups in the US.
The program matches each startup with decision makers from major Fortune 100 and 500 companies that dominate these industries.
The startups and their corporate advisers work together for six months to first identify the most commercializable use cases and then test them in the Lab’s numerous sandbox buildings and facilities.
As the pilots deliver data and results, the Lab and its advisers work with the startups to refine their product and offering, thus enabling rapid growth and commercial traction.
