“Our goal is that CoLab, and Press Start as a whole, will make substantial progress in empowering the next-generation of leaders to find and implement actionable, scalable solutions,” said Osborne. “By connecting like-minded innovators and cultivating purpose-driven communities, we can collaborate towards a healthier, more equitable future for all Canadians.”

Press Start, the “social impact program” by digital life insurer nowly Insurance, is holding an accelerator which aims to address major social issues faced by Canadians.

For the first year of the new “Press Start CoLab” accelerator, a diverse group of thought leaders will collaborate on developing solutions and viable ideas to solve pressing social issues – with a focus on intersectionality and diversity, a release said. According to nowly, the three main issues the accelerator hopes to address are climate change grief, misinformation and cultural sensitivities around youth mental health.

“The challenges we all face as a society – and especially CoLab’s three challenge areas – are irrefutably interconnected and require diverse groups to find effective, holistic solutions that consider all lived experiences,” said nowly Insurance chief marketing & social innovation officer Martha Turner Osborne.
