Successful finalists will be invited to join our programme, which will run in two phases.
The first phase will run for up to 10 weeks. The aim of the first phase is for startups to demonstrate a proof of concept (POC) of their solution, by working hand-in-hand with one of our aged care business units in Australia, New Zealand, UK or Spain.
Successful POCs will move into the second phase of the programme, where up to £25,000 may be available for startups to implement a minimum viable product (MVP) with one or more of our business units, in a time-frame of 90 days.
Throughout the programme, participants will receive mentoring from Bupa leaders, advice from our experts and business partners, and have access to office space to co-develop their ideas. Companies will be required to relocate to the relevant Bupa’s offices during part of the programme. This will be discussed and agreed with participants during the half day in-depth discussions selection process.
Participants will be required to attend a series of hosted events, pitches and workshops during the programme aimed to present progress to Bupa. Towards the end of the programme, a Demo Day event may be held where companies will showcase their products and journey to an audience of Bupa business leaders, potential investors, and influencers invited by Bupa. Participants will also have the opportunity to network with Bupa business executives and other event invitees.
At the end of the programme, startups will review learnings and agree next steps with our businesses.
