Modern Aging Singapore is a business accelerator designed to facilitate the creation of new, Singapore based businesses that meet the needs of the elderly. Modern Aging is supported by the Ministry of Health and is the creation of ACCESS Health International and NUS Enterprise.
Modern Aging combines online learning and focused workshops with individual mentoring. An expert faculty drawn from business and thought leaders in the Singapore community will describe the impact of demographic change and highlight business opportunities. Modern Aging will provide instruction on the basics of creating a new business and will help participants create strong business plans. Mentors will work with participants individually to create fundable business proposals. A panel of experts will award funding to those proposals they believe are most likely to succeed.
Modern Aging Singapore will also tap into leading university research and technologies from around the world by bringing these together with innovators and entrepreneurs. This highly focused initiative offers Singapore the opportunity to have a global impact on aging populations. Simultaneously, Modern Aging Singapore will catalyze the development of future Singaporean entrepreneurs in the elder market.
