Modern Aging is an ACCESS Health International initiative that inspires and empowers entrepreneurs of all ages and backgrounds to create businesses to serve the needs of the elderly.
Modern Aging fosters a unique, international ecosystem for the business of aging. We work with entrepreneurs, corporations, government representatives, healthcare professionals, investors, researchers, seniors, and students to advance their business models while delivering social impact.
Modern Aging educational programs provide insights into the needs of the elderly and examples of successful businesses and best practices. Modern Aging mentors participants in these programs and provides limited seed funding for participants to start their own busineses.
Modern Aging Singapore creates new businesses that help people live better as they live longer. Created by ACCESS Health International and its partners, NUS Enterprise, Modern Aging Singapore is a community, a business accelerator, and an education platform.
The Modern Aging accelerator program identifies and develops start up companies that serve the needs of aging populations around the world. With the help of industry experts, mentors and our comprehensive business education program, we ensure that our Modern Aging start ups are able to scale up operations and are empowered to take their ideas forward.
