The Care Innovation Challenge Final




Top Five Teams Pitching Head to Head.

The top 5 teams from the Care Innovation Challenge weekend will be supported with funding and mentoring over 4 weeks to develop their idea and run initial testing and market research. The teams will join us at the final to pitch again to a panel of judges.    

The Care Innovation Challenge Final Prizes.

All five teams have the opportunity to be awarded on-going funding and support. The Care Innovation Challenge final is not about picking one team, but selecting ideas and teams that have the potential to create impactful solutions and viable businesses.    

Finalists 2018


  Hassan Zaidi, PhD researcher, has found a way to make sure  loved ones will never be alone and in need: help will be there.


Our service helps care homes ensure that everybody has the chance to develop long-term meaningful relationships. We create profiles of each carer and resident and suggest matches based on shared traits and interests. 


 Blossom aims to reduce overall recruitment costs by increasing employee retention before the critical 1 year drop out period.


The team developed a secure, affordable and adaptable device that alerts carers or family members to a potential problem their loved one is experiencing.


bEmE created The Age Simulation Suit, which has different components that constrict physical movement. This service is especially effective for the reason that it allows people to feel the hardship of old age on their own skin. 


Our app-coupled-with-device system would measure sleep patterns of dementia residents in care homes. Measuring residents' quality of sleep at night (noise production, movement) will help predict aggressive behaviour during the day.
