The Pitch!

December 12, 2019

CareFactor is Australia’s first Aged Care Incubator program providing the skills, resources and support for aged care start-ups and entrepreneurs. Yesterday, Paynters Director and CareFactor mentor, John McCafferty attended Pitch Day in Brisbane along with the CareFactor team.

In September, 10 teams were selected to participate in the program which included a 3-day intensive masterclass and an 8-week mentoring program culminating in the pitch day, where each team presented to industry providers and potential investors. The team selected by the judging panel won the opportunity to develop and launch their business internationally through a week at Austrade’s Singapore Launchpad. Congrats to @Hayylo for coming away with the win!

Paynters are very pleased to support innovative approaches to better care and support for Seniors in our community through the sponsorship of the CareFactor program. John McCafferty and Sally Hogan (Strategist Aged Care & Supported Living) are mentors of the program, providing an insight into the sector & providing solutions to solve industry challenges.
