As our population ages, and quality control measures for the industry become more stringent, Australian aged care providers will need to think and act innovatively in order to remain viable and continue to provide the care and support that people in our community need. The CareFactor Aged Care Incubator Program provides a platform to develop and test unique solutions for solving key challenges facing the aged care industry.
CareFactor is an accelerated program of growth and learning for aged care startups, entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs. Participants will not only gain skills, resources and support, but also invaluable access to mentors, community and networks in aged care, investors and capital raising opportunities.
CareFactor is the brainchild of accounting firm Bentleys QLD and is supported by a host of notable sponsors including ACSA, Austrade, Westpac, Paynters, SprintVC, Advancer, OQCE and, of course, Redchip.
About the program
The CareFactor Incubator Program runs over 12 weeks from September to December. It includes a 3 Day Masterclass, an 8 Week Mentoring Course and a Pitch Day.
There will also be a 12-month regional program commencing in February 2020.
