Maude's Ventures

Maude's Ventures awards seed funding to those who are innovating new ideas to help those within the dementia and Alzheimer's communities and their care partners.

Maude's Ventures is an exciting initiative funded by the Richard and Maude Ferry Foundation. This initiative was created by Richard and Maude Ferry after they faced their own long and difficult journey with Alzheimer's.


Annually, Maude's Design Challenge is hosted by Maude's Ventures. Through this challenge, innovators in the dementia and Alzheimer's fields have the opportunity to win seed funding for their ideas or products. Three innovators have the opportunity to win between $50,000-$100,000 to help them fund their ideas every year.

Our value lies in what we are and what we have been, not in our ability to recite the recent past.” – Homer
