Biotech & Health Extension: Program

Foresight’s Biotech & Health Extension Group sponsored by 100 Plus Capital is a private group of scientists, entrepreneurs, and institutional allies, connected by a virtual group, who meet monthly to spur field-wide progress on technologies that fight aging and increase human healthspan. Meetings are private and may be off-the-record. Those that are recorded can be found on our video page.

In 2021 we focus on a year-long ecosystem accelerator to support high-impact work on health extension that would not otherwise get done. In the first half of 2021, we identify crucial areas in the health extension field that have strong multiplier effects for advancing progress. In the second half, we support promising approaches for solving those key areas via financial support, mentorship, and connection to relevant researchers, founders, and funders. See the keynote program below with mentors toward the bottom of this page. Apply to join with your idea, project, or company. You can also support to join.

Sept- Nov | Health Extension: Radical Progress Accelerator

Projects that seek to make foundational progress on health extension receive mentorship and financial grants to create a prototype that is presented for potential follow-on support. Our keynotes from Jan – Aug serve as an orientation for the level of ambition and potential focus areas your project could address. Rather than predictable incremental advances, your idea, if successful, would significantly advance field-wide progress on health extension. Final projects are presented to the main group and invited funders for follow-up support.
