Remarkable Introduces 2022 Global Cohort of Startups

Remarkable Introduces 2022 Global Cohort of Startups
Posted on Fri 6 May 2022

Last month, we announced the launch of Remarkable US in partnership with our friends at Cerebral Palsy Alliance and Remarkable, an Australia-based disability technology startup accelerator. We’re proud to work alongside their teams and deeply grateful to SmartJob, LLC for their generous support.
We're thrilled to announce that Cerebral Palsy Alliance Research Foundation (CPARF) is funding three of the eight startups participating in this year's Remarkable Accelerator (#RA22). As part of Remarkable's global expansion into the US this year, Remarkable’s eight startups will be joining from several countries including Australia, the United States, and the United Kingdom. The demand for their global presence also represents the increased popularity of the Global Disabled and Elderly Assistive Technology Market, which is predicted to be worth $32 billion by 2026. The US-based companies are WearWorks®, Biomotum, and Particpant Assistive Products. 

“In only a matter of years we have gone from an in-person, Australia-based program, to a global online program, and now we are launching bespoke international programs to further meet market needs! The launch of Remarkable US marks an exciting chapter that will allow us to rapidly grow our impact,” said Pete Horsley, Founder of Remarkable.

Now without further ado, we are proud to present the #RA22 cohort!

  • RecoveryVR  provides a fun and engaging, medication-free, virtual reality application that motivates more adherence to rehab activities in the home or clinic while also providing measurement data, adherence tracking and unlimited healthcare access using a custom-built telehealth portal.
  • Participant Assistive Products is democratizing high-quality assistive products and putting them within reach of unserved people, starting with the 70 million people who need but do not have a wheelchair or the mobility, health, inclusion, and dignity that an appropriate wheelchair can provide.

  • Biomotum  designs smart wearable robots to empower mobility and discovery in children with cerebral palsy.
  • Accessercise is the first complete fitness app created specifically for people with impairments.

Over the course of our 16-week accelerator, each startup receives seed funding and participatea in masterclasses, sprints, and deep dives. It all culminates in pitches to more than 500 international investors, partners, and industry connections at Demo Day on July 20, 2022. 

Each startup will be working with one of eight expert coaches who will help guide them on their Remarkable journey. Our wonderful coaches this year include Kate JenkinsAlan JonesBen ReidPoppy RouseWarren BinghamLaura Anderson, with a special shout-out to US-based coaches, Molly Levitt and Sam Lazarus.

The program will also be supported by an incredible community of mentors, as well as, Open Inclusion who provides user-testing experiences with people with disabilities to identify practical, inclusive and accessible innovations.
