The winning startup

Three of the aforementioned companies competed for the prizes: Careship, Coronect, and Veyo Care. Five experts judged their pitches on the following criteria (1) idea or product, (2) team and business model, (3) impact on the aging experience.

The jury consisted of the following members, representing policy, innovation, science, venture capital and seniors themselves:

  • Malte Behmer, Branchenkoordinator Gesundheitswirtschaft, IHK Berlin
  • Sebastian Glende, Managing Director, YOUSE GmbH
  • Rolf Haberstroh, Mitglied der Senior Research Group, TU Berlin
  • Marten Haesner, Leiter AG Alter & Technik, Charité Geriatrie
  • Daniel Steffen, Investment Manager, IBB

After careful deliberation, the jury announced that Careship held the winning pitch. Careship will be listed on the global Aging2.0 website, for the subsequent round of online voting (starting in July). Based on that voting, a number of startups will be invited to present to 1000+ attendees at the OPTIMIZE conference in San Francisco on October 12-14.
