Innovation Pitch Zone

Innovation Pitch Zone at Healthy Ageing 2023

The Innovation Pitch Zone at Healthy Ageing 2023, run by Zinc VC, provided some of the brightest and best innovators working across healthy ageing the opportunity to pitch in front of a judging panel made up of investors and health partners. Each pitcher presented their cutting-edge service or product in a three-minute pitch, which was followed by five minutes of rigorous questioning from the panel.

Pitchers showcased a diverse array of pioneering solutions, including: 

  • An indoor navigation AI designed to enhance travel experiences with better support 
  • A revolutionary visual field test for advancing ophthalmic health diagnostics 
  • An AI-designed programmable hand support device aimed at improving dexterity and mobility 
  • An AI-driven mobility device tailored for the visually impaired to navigate with ease 
  • A fitness walker with a ground-breaking design to inspire and promote healthy, active lifestyles 

Following all pitches, the judging panel awarded five accolades which were presented to the winners on the main stage at the end of Healthy Ageing 2023:
