Positive ageing is about exploring the potential to enhance the experience of our later lives.

This topic aims to take a fresh view of growing older through:
1. Supporting people of all ages to achieve their full potential
2. Encourage older adults to engage in economic, social, cultural, and family life
3. Fostering better solidarity between generations
4. Creating a society where equality, independence, participation, care, self-actualization, and dignity of all people are the prime objectives

Startup Weekend Hong Kong +ve Ageing is an opportunity for you to design and build innovative products and services that can help people lead fuller, healthier and more rewarding lives into old age, asking the question: how can we meet the challenge of a rapidly ageing society in a positive way?

We'll equip the participants with tools through our workshops to rethink how empathy, design, and technology together can impact positive ageing, and help them build to their startup with valuable feedbacks by experienced mentors and judges.

All participants will automatically enroll in Hong Kong Social Enterprise Challenge after the competition. The 3 winning teams will even have a SHORTCUT to Hong Kong Social Enterprise Challenge semi-final and other prizes!
