Many people have been suffering a cost of living crisis for decades. This year, that crisis has spread to most of the population, causing a major shock across the developed world. We want to empower middle-aged people to turn uncertainty into opportunity, to seize technology and make it work for them, to reinvent their lives and to achieve the financial security they need to navigate their own way through a changing and uncertain world.


Our next mission is to transform the industries that have the most impact on our environmental crisis. Applications are now open for those passionate about the environment and interested in building a scalable, commercial business in this space.

Mental Health

The current crisis in mental and emotional health is the result of a lack of accessible, effective solutions.

Later Life

There are one billion people in the world aged over 60. By 2050, there will be two billion. By 2100, there will be three billion. As people live longer, older people make up an ever-larger proportion of the population. Soon, we can expect to see hundreds of millions of people living beyond the age of 100.
