Enterprise Crowdsourced Innovation

Fulcra is an Enterprise Innovation Agency and SaaS Platform, specifically designed to help you create tomorrow’s products today.

We proudly support the NFL HeadHealth Tech Challenge

The National Football League (NFL) and Football Research, Inc. (FRI) have partnered with Duke University’s Clinical and Translational Science Institute (Duke CTSI) to create the HeadHealthTECH Challenges—an ongoing series of innovation challenges intended to stimulate industry-disrupting advancements in the areas of head protection, materials science, and head kinematics, among others. Multiple TECH Challenges each year are structured to drive research and innovation, and to create a collaborative intellectual forum to connect scientists, academics and innovators with engineering experts, mentors and venture capitalists.

HeadHealthTECH Challenge VI is an opportunity to showcase your thinking, solutions and novel approaches to improving protective equipment—and to join a community of experts and innovators passionate about safety in sports. Winners will be eligible to receive funding from a total award pool of up to $1 million USD per year to further advance their proposed technology. Every TECH Challenge applicant also receives constructive feedback and mentoring from Duke CTSI biomechanical and biomedical engineering experts to help refine innovations and increase their chances for success on future submissions.

Help pave the way to enhanced protective equipment. Submit your concept in TECH Challenge VI by September 13, 2018. The following types of proposals are encouraged:

  • Improvements in helmet and/or the surfaces that helmets contact (e.g., turf, grass, other helmets, opponent padding, including shoulders, etc.);
  • Ready-to-deploy material advances;
  • Studies that define the range of exposures (e.g., location, speed of impact, frequency of impact) that can be used to improve test protocols for helmet development
  • Studies that elucidate the optimal stress-strain properties of helmet materials.
