Smart Tech Foundation's mission is to foster innovation to reduce gun violence. There has been little focus on the role of innovation within the firearm industry and they believe there is a substantial opportunity to bridge the gap between what is and what could be.
They are launching a series of global challenges aimed at incentivizing new, early stage, and experienced innovators to accelerate the development and availability of products to prevent and better respond to gun related injuries and deaths. Grants and prize money totaling at least $1 MILLION are available for each challenge, and will go directly to innovators.
