Innovators’ Den Categories

This years’ Innovators Den will have two distinct categories, the Start-Up Den and International Innovators’ Den. Pitches in each category will be adjudicated independently.

Start-Up Category

Start-ups are emerging businesses, seeking to break into the market to bring fresh ideas forward. Entrepreneurs, by definition, seek to introduce innovation and break ties from the status quo. Join us for this special ‘start-up’ edition of the Innovators’ Den that will showcase a fresh perspective on products and services to improve quality and efficiencies in long-term care and for aged care providers.

International Category

Through the unique partnership of the Ontario Long Term Care Association and the Global Ageing Network, this year our Innovators Den participants will include vendors from around international markets. This year’s session is designed to showcase revolutionary products or services from across the globe that will improve the quality and/or efficiency of care in long-term care homes and aged care services. This session encourages both market growth and new market development and will act as a platform to educate and inform delegates on your company’s services.
