CC-ABHI is pleased to announce the launch of its Industry Innovation Partnership Program (I2P2). This new initiative is designed to enable successful applicant companies worldwide, to work with an eligible seniors’ care organization trial partner to test and validate their product or service in the field of aging and brain health! Through this program, CC-ABHI will provide a co-investment of up to $600,000 (CAD) in funding to the eligible trial partner site to fund a trial of the successful applicant company’s innovative product or service. In total, up to $1.5 million in funding is available through this program.
We are all aging! By helping to bring viable solutions to market faster, we can make a real impact on the quality of life for the world’s aging population and contribute to ensuring more resources are accessible to support this life stage.
We are very excited about this program. We are looking to fund ideas from product or services companies of any size or stage, including start-ups, small-to medium-sized enterprises or multinational enterprises worldwide. Successful applicants must work with an eligible North American trial partner site to test their product or service.
Up to $1.5 million is available in support of innovations for the healthcare sector (maximum of $600,000 per project). CC-ABHI will provide 50% of the funding to the eligible North American trial partner site to work with the company to test and validate the company’s product or solution. Successful applicants will be required to co-invest 50% of the project costs through cash and in-kind support.
