Innovating after 50: DEMO Scholarships for Entrepreneurs

Posted By Beth Carpenter On June 23, 2011 @ 4:30 am In Work | Comments Disabled

“What will you do when you grow up?”

That was the question we asked in this TV spot [2] only a few months ago. You get what we mean, right? We want to help you do that thing you always put off but never did. We want to know how you opened that chocolate shop [3]; we want to give you the financial info you need to quit your job and become a church organist [4], or give you a scholarship to enable your Big Idea.

Scholarship? Yep. We’re sending two entrepreneurs to the DEMO conference [5] this September, to put your Big Idea in front of people who can help make it happen.

The basics: you have to be either over 50, or your idea has to propose a product or service that serves the wants and/or needs of people over the age of 50. More details here. [6]

What are you waiting for? Apply!  [7]
