Arlington County and Culpeper Garden $12K Pitch Contest

Arlington County Economic Development and Culpeper Gardens, a seniors living housing company, are holding a Pitch Contest called the Innovation in Healthy Aging Challenge with applications to pitch due by October 11, 2019.

The contest is targeted to companies that have products that improve the health, mobility, and quality of life for senior citizens like me. The sponsors describe the contest as a unique competition to provide funding and pilot program opportunities for innovative companies and technologies focused on improving the lives of low-income seniors.

The announcement states that three companies will be selected to pilot their products and receive $12 thousand in funding.

The contest is open to companies of all stages from startup seed to established companies from anywhere in the world. You can apply to compete in the Healthy Aging Challenge with this link.

While I’m usually against pitch contests that are just vanity gong-show Jersey Shore-ish trash. This contest is an exception. It is for a good cause and $12,000 for 3 winners is not chump change!
