Alex Ramamurthy: Speaking at the Dementia, Care & Nursing Home Expo Birmingham

Mirthy

Alex Ramamurthy

Innovation in Care

The future of care services will be dependent on the innovation and creativity that we show as a sector in the coming years. If we are to have a sector that is truly fit for purpose, we will need to embrace innovation and technology. As Chair of the Care Innovation Hub and Founder/CEO of my own startup aiming to disrupt social inclusion in later life, I hope to offer an engaging talk and some tips to take away into your own organisations.


Biography

Alex spent the last two years as CEO of The Care Workers Charity (CWC), where he led CWC through a transformative period resulting in several award wins and exponential growth. Prior to joining the Charity, Alex spent six years in the startup scene building socially minded businesses focussed on improving wellbeing for those in later life. These businesses went on to be acquired by the NHS and Age UK.

Alex is driven to solve big problems and stepped down from CWC to launch Mirthy in Jan-19, an online marketplace connecting under-utilised communal space in retirement living schemes and care homes with those looking for adult day clubs - think Airbnb for elderly socialising!

Alex also sits on several boards including the Care Innovation Hub as Chairman, the startup incubator for the care sector, that has received backing from the Department for Health and Social Care.
