New Funding for Products related to Healthy Ageing

By This Age Thing

A new funding round has been announced by Design Age Institute at the Royal College of Art, which supports entrepreneurs and product designers working in the longevity economy.

Four new projects focus on personal mobility and were generously funded up to 70k by the UK Research and Innovation Healthy Ageing Challenge and Innovate UK; the remaining three were funded by Research England via the DAI’s new partnership with Zinc VC. Design Age Institute invited Zinc’s Healthy Ageing Catalyst Award holders and portfolio ventures to apply for up to £40k in funding to tap into design that can support their research-led products and services on the journey to market.

Among the awardees are personal mobility scooter 3Scooter by Supersmith, home mobility aid Sheila’s Secret Planter and AI community facilitator Squiboon.
