VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA – (March 21, 2023)
VoltSafe Inc. is excited to announce it has been selected to pitch at the AgeTech Collaborative from AARP Open Mic Challenge on Thursday, March 30th. The competition features startups with solutions that make aging easier for everyone.
AgeTech is the growing category of technology solutions designed to meet the needs of the world’s aging population and the more than $45 trillion global economy it represents. AgeTech includes products, services and experiences across industries that contribute to longer, healthier lives and empower people to choose how they live as they age. VoltSafe complements this mission perfectly with its patented technology and electrical connectors that make it safer and easier to access and control high voltage electricity than ever before.
Pitching on behalf of VoltSafe will be CEO, Trevor Burgess, “A distinguishing benefit of VoltSafe’s magnetic electrical connectors, particularly our home outlet solution, is the intuitive prongless design that makes connecting to electricity far more accessible. Traditional pronged plugs and tamper-resistant outlets are problematic at the best of times, especially for those who endure physical challenges attributed to aging or arthritis. With VoltSafe Home, everyone can safely connect their appliances, devices, or other household items such as vacuums to electricity with ease. The magnetic disconnection also reduces serious tripping hazards associated with electrical cords connected with prongs.”
The AgeTech Collaborative connects the most forward-thinking investors, enlightened enterprises, testbeds and startups that have technologies or services to generate new ideas and products that can benefit people over 50+ years old, empowering people to choose how they live as they age. It is an extension of AARP, a US-based non-profit organization that supports and advocates for our aging population and aims to help them live an empowered lifestyle. The organization has nearly 38 million members.
The longevity market is growing at a feverish pace. The US population is aging and it is projected that by 2040, 1 in 5 adults will be a senior, with Canada expected to hit similar levels by 2046. If successful in the Open Mic Challenge, VoltSafe will be eligible for the AgeTech accelerator, which provides 8 weeks of hands-on mentorship, introductions to healthcare networks, and in-depth insights into the longevity market to help the company level up and better serve seniors.
