Healthy Ageing – accelerating innovation in the care sector
Care and HealthTech Bridge powered by Barclays Eagle Labs funded by UK Government
In collaboration with CodeBase, we have developed a new programme, Care and HealthTech Bridge, that brings together some of the UK’s leading corporations and most promising startups. This programme allows some of UK’s biggest firms to share experiences and connect and learn both with peers and start-ups working in the industry.
Care and HealthTech Bridge is a seven module programme that will run until March 2024 with workshops taking place fortnightly. It is designed to encourage collaboration and innovation among corporates and startups involved in healthy ageing and the care sector.

How is the programme delivered?
This is a seven module programme that will run until March 2024, with workshops taking place fortnightly through a series of themed meetups. Sessions bring together business and industry experts, as well as leaders from established companies involved with care and ageing and startups to work on solutions to help healthy ageing.
Each of the seven modules are designed to expose firms and the HealthTech startups to core strategic thinking and best practices and will cover relevant topics that ensure a valuable exchange about innovation.
Technology has a huge part to play in improving and enhancing the ageing care space; creating efficiencies, managing data, improving digital inclusion and improving emotional wellbeing.
We understand that is can be difficult for larger care providers and startups to work together to help tackle some of the challenges the industry faces. Through Care and HealthTech Bridge, we help surface these challenges to collectively come up with new solutions to the problems faced by the care sector.
Who’s it for?
The programme is designed to unite leaders from established care and related companies with startups in the UK to work towards healthier ageing. The programme provides a platform for sharing ideas and expertise to drive innovation in the industry.
Our programme welcomes businesses involved in healthy ageing or care at any stage, from startups to senior staff members who can implement change management and harness innovation.
HealthTech startups and businesses whose products, services or innovations can be applied to the healthy ageing sector will be able to build deeper domain expertise and meet larger businesses from the industry to expand their network and potentially provide solutions or proofs-of-concept for larger businesses.
Incumbent businesses are introduced to new technologies, practices, skills and cultures to help transform and accelerate innovation in their business.
CodeBase is the UK’s largest startup incubator, home to more than 100 of the country’s best technology companies. We champion businesses tackling big challenges with technology, and work tirelessly to support the development of a more diverse and competitive European digital industry.
Steve Shearman, founder eCERTO, a cohort one start-up said:
“The EnergyTech programme is a hyper accelerant and provides the framework to really engage with leaders around hard to solve problems and quickly leverage technology regardless of company size. After just three sessions, the relationship building and quality of conversation is hugely refreshing. In addition, engagement outside the scheduled meetings is building a genuinely strong and cohesive cohort and peer group.”
