Your idea could help change the quality of older age care!
Responsible Investor co-created the Silver Linings older age care competition, organised by Hugh Wheelan, RI Co-founder and Joint Managing Director, Sally Bridgeland, FIA, trustee, non-executive director and adviser and Dr Rachel Melsom, MBBS, BSc., Director, Medical Matrix Consulting, and practicing physician with a special interest in Older Persons Care.
Having spent our careers in the world of pensions, investment, sustainability and the medical and caring professions, we know that providing and financing good, long-term care is a problem that is not currently getting the required attention, especially in terms of sustainable investment into solutions.
We started Silver Linings to get ideas in front of investors. The recommended Business Plans will present at an event in February to the Silver Linings judges, which includes representatives from big pension funds, as well as a cross-section of professionals from across the health, ageing, design and living sectors.
Some of the Silver Linings judges have written handy guidance pieces on how to think about writing a Silver Linings Business Plan.
Colum Lowe, Director, Design Age Institute, one of the Silver Linings competition judges, wrote the following article: How to write a 3000 word Business Plan to enter the Silver Linings older age care competition.
Shefaly Yogendra, PhD, and a Portfolio NED specialising in deep tech, risk and decision-making, wrote the following article: Helpful ‘ways of thinking’ to create a 3k word Business Plan for the Silver Linings older age care competition and win £10k.
