SilverEco & HandiTech

Next call for applications: March 2022

This program accelerates ambitious startups specializing in adaptability that use technology to promote independence and autonomy.

France is facing significant demographic challenges with an aging population and growing life expectancy. This is why the Silver Economy is so promising and encourages entrepreneurs to create technology to meet the needs of seniors. Robotics, home automation, teleassistance and telemedicine are at the heart of the innovations launched by startups to increase security and comfort for seniors. At the same time, inclusive solutions that compensate for handicaps and loss of autonomy are flourishing. This proves that, more than ever, innovation is a powerful tool for a more supportive society.

A few words from our entrepreneurs

“SeniorAdom was one of the first graduates of the Silver Economy program at WILCO. Beyond the financing provided, WILCO quickly gave us access to potential partners to distribute our B2B offers. WILCO also made us more visible to different financing players (BPI & investment funds), which was extremely helpful when fundraising. This support helped us exceed 1 million in revenues in 3 years, which wouldn’t have been possible without the financing obtained through WILCO. “

WILCO Mentor
” I really enjoy helping founders reach their first million in revenue and sharing my digital entrepreneurship experience. I think it’s essential to help these entrepreneurs reach their market as quickly as possible and structure their activity as they grow. I also like helping entrepreneurs in the long term, so they can step back from their activity, find solutions and make decisions more calmly, all by setting milestones and implementing regular reporting. “
