Singaporean entrepreneur Janice Chia founded Ageing Asia Pte Ltd with the mission to drive innovation in the way future generations age, by engaging the business community to create better products and services that will enable healthy ageing, independent ageing and dignified ageing.
Janice has accumulated her vast experience from visiting over 400 residential and aged care homes from over 15 countries. Since 2009, she has been actively involved in consulting organisations seeking global best practices in housing, health and care models that can be translated for the Asian market. Janice is also quoted regularly in the media, such as the BBC, on Asia Pacific business trends in ageing. The BBC interview clip can be viewed here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZMuYpO0ByPw&t=10s
Influenced by the changing needs of her elderly relatives, and inspired by higher expectations in quality of life of the baby boomer generation, Janice firmly believes that social challenges of ageing can be transformed into economic opportunities for Asia. Her vision is to change the way we age in Asia Pacific, and move towards an ageing-at-home world where older adults age in better health, desire independence and aspire towards ageing with dignity.
Ageing Asia is Asia’s first ageing market consultancy social enterprise that identifies trends and economic opportunities in the business of ageing in Asia Pacific. Specialising in strategic partnerships, market intelligence and industry training, Ageing Asia brings together business leaders, government and community leaders to access Asia Pacific’s US$3.3 trillion silver industry.
